'I'm famished, Mum. What's for tea?'

 

What do you think the word 'famished' means?

CORRECT ANSWER
very hungry

The word tea gives us a clue that famished may be linked to hunger.
  • Question 4

Choose the correct way to complete the following sentence.

 

That poor dog has hurt ____ leg.

CORRECT ANSWER
its
EDDIE SAYS
It's is short for it is. In this case, we are talking about a dog's leg so we do not need an apostrophe.
  • Question 5

Read the sentence and mark the correct word to fill the gap.

Can you ______ that noise outside?

CORRECT ANSWER
hear
EDDIE SAYS
Hear and here are homophones. It is important to know the correct spelling and use of each one. Here is for 'over here', it's linked to a place. Hear is linked to our hearing of sound.

Read the sentence below and decide whether the verb in bold is in the present tense or the past tense.

 

Jamie ran down the stairs.

CORRECT ANSWER
past tense
EDDIE SAYS
Ran is in the past, run is in the present.
  • Question 7

Write the correct word to go with the picture.

 

CORRECT ANSWER
tomatoes
EDDIE SAYS
Tomato is a noun. Its plural 'tomatoes' is a common exception word as it does not just end in the standard 's'. This is an important rule to learn.
  • Question 8

Choose the correct word to go with the picture.

 

CORRECT ANSWER
badge
EDDIE SAYS
Badge is a common exeption word, its spelling needs to be learned.
  • Question 9

Choose the correct spelling to complete the sentence.

 

Isabel was the only one who __________ the answer.

CORRECT ANSWER
knew
EDDIE SAYS
Knew and new are homophones. It is important to use the correct spelling of the word with the correct meaning. Knew is when you know something. New is when something is introduced to you or not previously known.
  • Question 10

Choose the correct spelling to complete the sentence.

 

I didn't have enough __________ to buy the book.

CORRECT ANSWER
money
EDDIE SAYS
The correct spelling is money.
  • Question 11

Write the missing word to complete the sentence.

I always finish my lunch with an __________.

CORRECT ANSWER

EDDIE SAYS
When spelling words ending with 'le' often they have a double consonant. This is to protect the short vowel sound in the stressed syllable.
  • Question 12

Read these words:

there

their

 

 

Choose a sentence which uses the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
The ship is over there.
EDDIE SAYS
You use 'their' to say something belongs to someone.

Rewrite the following statement as a question.

(Don't forget the question mark!)

 

The boys have been to London.

CORRECT ANSWER
Have the boys been to London?
EDDIE SAYS
You are changing a statement into a question so you need to put the verb before the noun.
  • Question 14

Write the joining word in the answer box.

 

Mum read her book while Dad watched television.

CORRECT ANSWER
while
EDDIE SAYS
While is used as a conjunction or joining word. It enables us to join two sentences together.
