We are a class of 25 year 2 and 3 children from Whangarei, New Zealand. This is our blog spot. It is a place to share our learning with others. The work in this blog is our own and although we try our very best with things like spelling, we are learners and our work reflects what we are able to do. Celebrate our learning and successes with us and encourage us by leaving helpful and supportive comments. We look forward to sharing our work with you.

The Magic 'e'
We have been learning about the magic 'e'. We discovered that the magic 'e' makes us say the name of the vowel in a word.
hat has a short 'a' sound, but if we add an 'e' to the end the 'a' becomes a long 'a' sound (it says it's name) so the new word is hate.
Listen to this song for other examples and see if you can sing along.
