SPELLINGS

*If you are using Lexia, please continue working on this at home.

*This coming week we will be working on the spelling suffix -ous

The letters ‘ous’ are a suffix, meaning ‘full of’.

Please learn the following words this week.

famous, nervous, ridiculous, carnivorous, herbivorous, porous, adventurous, courageous, outrageous, advantageous


We will be using activities and quizzes to check how you have done.


Useful information about adding -ous:

Usually, adding ‘ous’ changes a noun into an adjective, as in danger to

dangerous and there are conventions for the spellings:

• Words ending in ‘y’: delete the ‘y’ and add ‘ious’ (glory/glorious)

• Words ending in ‘ge’: do not drop the ‘e’(courage/courageous)

• Words ending in ‘ce’: drop the ‘e’ and add ‘ious’ (space/spacious

• Words ending in ‘our’: change to ‘or’ and add ‘ous’ (humour/

humorous)

Keep working on the Years 3 and 4 spelling words. We will be checking how you are getting on with these words by using activities and quizzes.

Maths:

We are working on shape at the moment. Why not spend time looking around you for different shapes. How many different ones can you find in the world around you?

You could draw and label a picture using as many different 2D shapes as you can. Try to not just use squares, triangles, circles and rectangles.


Please continue working on your times tables this week.

This maths knowledge will really help you with different maths areas at school and in life. Please keep practicing!

We will continue using times tables activities next week to check how you are doing.
