31.10.17

Year 3 Spellings

Our spelling focus for Grammar this week is… Contractions.

In English you can use contractions to shorten a word by removing one letter or more and substituting an apostrophe in the same spot.

For example, if you remove ‘wi’ out of I will, and add in an apostrophe, you will then have I’ll. The resulting word is shorter and faster to say.

Below are some words that use an apostrophe to shorten the sound, but there are others. Learn the words below and on Monday 6th November we will be having a spelling check.

1. shouldn't

2. couldn’t

3. we’ll

4.weren’t

5. hasn't

6. didn't

7. mightn’t

8. mustn’t

9. would’ve

10. they've

WC 02.10.17 

Our spelling focus for Grammar this week is… using the correct plurals.

 

The rule is if the word ends in a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) and a y then we just add s (e.g. journey/journeys).

 

But if the word ends in a consonant and a y then the y changes to

–ies (e.g. country/countries, jelly/jellies).

 

There are 10 spellings this week, but they have a twist - I want you to learn the rule, as I will only be saying the root word and you will have to decide if it needs an ‘s’ or ‘ies’.

 

Learn the words below and next Monday we will have a spelling check where you will apply the rules.

 

1. party

2. key

3. baby

4. city

5. try

6. memory

7. boy

8. tray

9. sky

10. body
