This week in our spellings, we’re learning to drop the ‘y’ for an ‘i’. We’re also looking at variations of word endings when dropping the ‘y’.
By adding ‘ier’ on the end of the adjective, we infer that something is more of that adjective than something else. For example, “A carrot is healthier than a chocolate bar.”
By adding ‘est’ on the end on the end of the adjective, we infer that something is the most. For example, ” Jacob Marley was the scariest fancy dress costume on Thursday.”
As all of the variations to the words are similar, I’ve included more words on the list. Any of the words in the list above could come up on the test on Friday 09 March.
