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?)|
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.
|Words ending in -sure||Words ending in -sure||Adding suffixes with more than one syllable|
As a school we use Spelling Shed to support spelling at home. Your child will have been sent home with their username and password in their home learning books. Spelling Shed has personalised spellings to practise for your child. You can also reach Maths Shed through this link.
