Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)

 

This term, we will be building on our existing knowledge of expanded noun phrases and subordinate clauses.

 

Expanded noun phrases are used to describe and follow the pattern of: 

 

adjective, adjective noun

 

We use language through colour to support our understanding of word classes:

 

Nouns (what?) Verbs (what doing?) Adjective (what like?) Adverb (how?)
Preposition (where?) Adverbial (when?) Conjunction (why?) Proper Nouns (who?)

 

Spelling

 

This term, we will be focusing on the new spelling patterns of words ending in -sure and -ture whilst building on our year 2 knowledge of suffixes. You can support your child by identifying these words within the texts they read at home whilst also practising spelling them using Spelling Shed.
