Can you write down these words that have our new 'ss' sound in:

Using one of the words above, can you put it into a simple sentence. Then see if you can have a go at writing the sentence down.


Here are a few examples; A big mess.

                             I had a kiss off mummy and daddy.

                             I am the boss.


Try and remember what your sentence needs: A capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop at the end of your sentence.
