    I got yesterday's easy one, but not the hard.

    Today I've done the hard one but can't get going on the easy one! Where to start?
  8. inq


    Done both!!!!
    (What do you mean that I should be doiong assessment and target setting!)
    The double letter at the end of the 2nd word is e if that starts you off!
  9. helpful hints - sorry if this is egg-sucking stuff - do not read if you do not want hints!!!
    the most common letters are e, t and a with n, s, o and i following close by
    ***'* is either ***n't or ****'s, possibly ****'d - *'* is i'm - *****'** is ****'re or ****'ve - as you have just found lh - **'* is it's, t* is to
    look out for a, I (this is kinder than other sites in showing where capital letters go - also useful for God, USA etc), the, where, there, people and such words - also words that might end -ing or -ed (
    a 3 letter word after a comma is most likely and, but, not or nor
    quotes can be by 'anonymous'
    i find it helps to swap daft letters like q, z and x for anything more sensible - also, to try to get vowels sensibly distributed
    if really desperate, a crossword solver website like
    <a> http://www.ojohaven.com/fun/crossword.html[/URL] can help
    my gat y5's and 6's get quite good at this with a little practise [​IMG]

  10. oh - and be very aware which letters can double
