15.01.18                             Year 3 Spellings

 

Our spelling focus for Grammar this week is… suffixes –er and –est where you drop the y and add i.

We were learning all about suffixes at the end of last term, so let’s look further at the suffixes –er and –est where we have to drop the consonant y on a word to add an i.

For example, in the word ‘happy’, we drop the y and add an i to make the word ‘happier’.

There are 10 spellings this week. Learn what happens to the root words below when you add -er or- est.

1. fancy

2. lazy

3. heavy

4. busy

5. grumpy

6. windy

7. jolly

8. fuzzy

9. noisy

10. curly
