This is a helpful booklet about prefixes and suffixes that children should be confident with by the end of YR1. Due to disruptions in children's learning your child might have some gaps-if your child works through the booklet this will help highlight any gaps. Please feedback to school via email.

This week we are focussing on the correct spelling of plurals

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD1OaD4FBqM

Spelling rules to learn:

 

a) If a word ends in y with a consonant before it (fly), you drop the y and add -ies' to make it plural. If the y has a vowel before it (boy) then you just add the s.

'baby' becomes 'babies' and 'party' becomes 'parties'

b) If a noun ends in 'f' or 'fe', to make the noun plural the 'f' or 'fe' becomes 'ves':
'calf' becomes 'calves' and 'knife' becomes 'knives'

c). If a noun ends in s / ss / ch / sh / x then we add '-es' when we turn it plural, for example:bus - buses, kiss - kisses, church - churches, brush - brushes, fox - foxes
A useful way to remember this is that if the word "hisses" or "buzzes" in your mouth when you say it, the plural has an -es on the end.

 

A common mistake that the children make:

Adding an apostrophe to a word does not make it plural: apple's does not mean more than one apple (that's apples)! We will be learning about possesive apostrophies next week.

Write these root words onto strips of paper- place them face down, turn them over one at a time and write the plural version (adult please check these are spelt correctly)

Key, toy, lorry,  berry, fly, bury, lady, party, nanny, brush, hedge, dish, fox, church, leaf, scarf.

Once you feel confident with the correct plural spellings use the plural words to write sentences. Remember, capital letters and full stops and practise writing sentences that use conjunctions (a word that links sentences together) such as, and, but, or, so, after, becuse, if, since, until, when. 

Don't forget to keep working on improving your letter formation using a cursive script.
