To investigate, collect
and classify spelling patterns in pluralisation, construct rules for regular
spellings, e.g. add s to most words; add es to most words ending in s, sh, ch;
when y is preceded by a consonant, change to ies; when y is preceded by a vowel,
What are the plurals
(more than one) of these singular words? Type in your own answers.
* Extension activity - see
how many more words you can find using this rule. Use a dictionary to help
you. Write down a sentence for each of the words to show that you
understand the rule.
