Adding the suffixes -ment, -ness and -ful
Work through the PowerPoint attached and revise the rules for adding the suffixes. In particular, if a word has more than 2 syllables and ends in –y change the –y to ‘i’ and add the suffix. Build up during the week by attempting a few slides each day.
Task: Use each spelling in a sentence. Remember your Year 2 writing rules, especially the correct use of Year 2 punctuation (see the Year 2 Writing and Grammar Top Tips above). Try to extend each sentence using a conjunction. E.g. and, so, but, because, when, that, if. Can you add a noun phrase to some of your sentences?
E.g. Charlie Bucket was filled with amazement when he saw the huge, magnificent, chocolate factory.
Mr Twit and Mrs Twit had an argument because Mrs Twit played a nasty, mean trick on him.
The Duchess of Cambridge took an online assembly about kindness a couple of weeks ago for The Oak Academy. Watch the assembly and then complete the kindness task during the week.
Task: Throughout the week, try and do a different kind act each day and start your own Kindness Diary. Maybe you could be extra helpful at home or maybe show kindness towards a brother or sister in some way such as sharing toys or making them something to make them smile.
Write down when and how you were kind to others and also when others were kind to you. You may want to draw pictures or add some photos using the attached resources or create your own diary. Think about how the acts of kindness made you feel.
