Spellings

Our spellings this week are some more lovely adverbs! These adverbs have all been created adding the suffix '-ly' but they are a bit more challenging because they are exceptions to the rules that we have learned so far this half term. You will need to learn each individually and make sure you know what they mean by looking in a dictionary (real or online) or by asking an adult. Can you put each one into a sentence? Learn them ready for Friday 4th December.

 

truly 

duly 

wholly 

fully 

publicly 

daily 

dryly 

slyly 

shyly 

coyly 

 

This week's spellings are adverbs that have been created using the suffix -ly  and where the root words end in ‘ic’ or ‘al’. The test will be next Friday (27th Nov):

frantically

dramatically

magically

tragically

comically

Welcome back! This week's spellings are more lovely adverbs created using the suffix -ly. This time, though, the root word ends in ‘y’ and has more than one syllable. Can you see what change has been made to each root word when the 'ly' has been added?

angrily

lazily

easily

busily

greedily

messily

wearily

cheekily

clumsily

The following spellings are for the Friday of the first week back after half term (6th November!).
