Homework 3.5.19

Homework 3.5.19

Friday 3rd May 2019

If you have completed your individualised spelling lists, please learn the spellings below.

All individual spellings will be written in Home School Diaries.

Your Spelling Rule

This week’s spellings are based on the suffix – ly. When we add suffixes to the end of a root word it changes the words type/or meaning.

Your Spelling Words

  • William Shakespeare happily finished his latest play.
  • The explorer easily navigated his way across the Atlantic.
  • Henry gently patted his horse.
  • Henry simply got rid of wives when he didn’t want them anymore.
  • Basically, Tudors’ teeth were rotten because they brushed them with soot.

Please learn spellings ready for a test on Thursday 9th May

 Spelling homework

Can you fill in the grid at the bottom of the sheet with 12 other words that have the suffix – ly added to the root word? You could look in dictionaries, books, magazines, newspapers or on the internet for examples.


Please use your handwriting homework book to practise your spellings. Put the short date at the top of the page and then pick 5 of the words above that you find the trickiest and copy them out 5 times in your neatest joined handwriting.

(Individual spellers with more words, please write out your spellings 4 times)

 Times tables homework

In school next week you will be practising the 6 times tables. The main focus is on increasing your mental recall speed for these times tables facts. You could practise using Times Tables Rockstars.


You should also ensure you are reading to an adult at home at least 3 times a week and record this in your home school diary. Remember 20 reads = a house point!
