the /v/ sound - v or ve the /v/ sound - v or ve
volcano detective
Teaching point The spelling rules for the /v/ sound are quite simple:

1. No English word ends in v . Always use ve:

live have above native intensive

2. Never put two v's together - vv looks too much like w :

lover giving ever every average

3. Never put uv. Always use ov instead:

cover above lovely shovel

The words below are all wrong. Use the rules above and type the correct word.

I have just finalised the progress of the year groups and am delighted to see that from December to June 53% of the 98 students using Spellzone have raised their standardised scores to 100 and above.

One of the students has put in a huge amount of effort in completing Spellzone at least 3 times a week since his arrival with us in January. Looking at his scores after the latest GL testing, his standardised score has risen from 99 to 131. This is a truly phenomenal result. I just wanted to share the best result I have ever seen.
