This week’s spellings are all words which need you to drop the ‘y’ for an ‘i’. Then, you add either ed or es to make the past tense or a plural noun. If you’re not sure what any of them mean, find out. Children may be asked to spell similar words which follow the same spelling pattern:

carry/ied fly/ies family/ies hurry/ied copy/ied
try/ied daisy/ies worry/ied puppy/ies story/ies

We are learning our 3 times tables.

This week, children have been sent home with a worksheet to complete which focuses them on words containing the long ‘ee’ vowel sound. We will be continuing this learning next week.

Children will be tested on these words and others with the same sound in on Friday 14 September.

alien words
This week’s spelling activity is to make up ten of your own alien words using our three spelling rules: double up for a short vowel sound, drop the y for an i and drop the e for ing. You must know how to pronounce your alien word, come up with your own definition and write it in a sentence.

For example:

treeve (treeving) verb 

To move around vigorously and quickly, as if being chased by bees.

“I wonder why Mrs Burgess is treeving over there. There aren’t any bees nearby,” said Miss Wilson.

This week’s spelling list is formed using our Must Do homophones for Year 3. Children should practise listening to a sentence read aloud and writing the correct word. For example:

Can you think of any fun ways to remember which word is right? Can you write some silly sentences? Can you show your words creatively?

  • your/you’re
  • its/it’s
  • of/off
  • of/have (shouldn’t have)
  • which/witch

Children should learn these in preparation for a spelling test on Friday 22 June.
