What happens when you add the suffix 'ly' to a word? Watch this video to find out.
Suffixes are letters that can be added to the end of words to change their meaning.
'nice' becomes 'nicely'
'happy' becomes 'happily'
'terrible' becomes 'terribly'
Can you change these words into adverbs? Make a table in your book and write down the new words you have made:
Remember the rules for adding ly? (Look at the list yesterday if you have forgotten!). Draw a table into your books. Make three columns. Sort out the words so that the match the rules. The first ones have been done for you:
+ ly to the root word
Change the y to an i, then +ly
Drop the le and +ly
Look at the new words you made yesterday. Can you use them to finish these sentences off so that they make sense? Write them into your books. Make sure you use your best cursive handwriting. Can you write 2 more sentences of your own using different words with -ly suffixes?

Words like: chemist, choir, ache, school, character.
They can be hard to spell because they don't make the sound you expect it to!

Yesterday you looked at words which have a 'k' sound but are written as 'ch'. See if you can sort these words out. You could fold a page in your book or draw a line down the middle of the page. On one side write 'ch makes a ch sound' and on the other 'ch makes a k sound'.
Have a go at writing a silly sentence with as many of the 'k' sound words in as possible.
