Pupils learn the correct use of the apostrophe for contractions and possessives at this level. Split digraph or magic ‘e’ spellings are also taught. Apples and Pears B extends the morphemic strategy, teaching the pupil why we drop the ‘e’ from ‘hope’ when we write ‘hoping’, but not when we write ‘hopeless’. It also covers the doubling rule, explaining why we double the ‘r’ in ‘starring’, but not in ‘starless’.
A range of new spelling patterns and irregular spellings are introduced at a carefully controlled rate.
