It’s our last week of spellings for this half term! This week, they all include our prefix learning of ‘un’. A prefix is added to the beginning of a word to change the meaning.
Our spellings are: unkind, unhappy, unfair, untie, unable, unused, uncover, unlucky, unsafe, and unhealthy.
Help at home by talking about the meaning of these words and how that changes if we remove the prefix ‘un’.
It’s our final week of spellings for this half term! We are going to be spelling adverbs. An adverb gives us information about how something is done.
quickly, slowly, carefully, happily, sadly, bravely, cheerfully, safely, loudly, quietly
This week, our spelling words will be compound words. Compound words are individual words that are made up of two other words combined. For example, hand and bag = handbag.
footprint, butterfly, classroom, lipstick, snowball, notebook, popcorn, toothbrush, rainbow, blackberry
