Spelling Monday 11th September

September10

This week’s spelling will focus on the suffix – ous (meaning full of). 

There are 3 rules for adding this suffix.

1) If the root word doesn’t change, just add ‘ous’

– e.g danger —-> dangerous

2) If the word ends in ‘e’, drop the e and add ‘ous’

– e.g. fame —->  famous

3) If the word ends in ‘y’ change it to an ‘i’ and add ‘ous’

– e.g. vary —-> various

Please check the spelling page every week for the weekly spelling notes.
