This weeks spellings:
Look at the grid below and use it together to create words from them. What do you notice about adding 'ness' to words that end in 'y'? Remind your child about what happens when you add other suffixes to words that end in 'y', for example, copy - copier, happy - happily - happier - happiest.
Share the words that you have created together. Discuss what the words mean. The suffix 'ness' changes an adjective (describing word) to a noun (a person, place, object, animal or thing) and means 'the state of being', for example, the state of being happy or sad - happiness/sadness.
Give your child a word from the grid above e.g. enjoyment. Read it out and ask your child to 'have a go' at spelling the word. Get them to check their spellings and if wrong, look closely and then write the word three times.
A two-part activity in which children practise spelling words with the suffixes 'ness' or 'ment' before putting the words into alphabetical order.
