Year 3 Spellings for test on 13/10/22
Date of test: Thursday 13.10.2022
Next week in phonics, the children will be recapping the ‘er’ sound family (er, ur, ir ) by looking at the rarely used graphemes for this sound, urr, ere, ear and or.)
Please help your child to practise when best to use each different spelling (grapheme) of the ‘er’ sound.
- ir or ur – both usually used in the middle of a word e.g. twirl, churn
- er – usually used at the end of a word e.g. butter
-urr – rarely used
-ere – rarely used
-or – often used after a ‘w’
-ear – often used before a ‘n’
The children have 8 spellings to learn this week linked to the sound family. Also, they will have 2 spellings that are homophones, where the words sound similar but are spelt differently. A good way to learn them is to practise them in sentences (Night is when it gets dark until sunrise. eg "It is night because it has got dark.” A knight is a mounted warrior from the past who wore armour. eg "The nights are going to fight with their lances.”).
