Phase 6

 

Welcome to phase 6 phonics! Please continue to practise the videos for phase 5 flashcards and tricky words.  

Week 4

Lesson 1

Today you are going to be adding the suffix ment to verbs. When you add the suffix ment to a verb it changes from a verb into a noun. Usually a suffix that begins with a consonant can be added straight onto the end of a root word. 

Have a go at the activities below.

Lesson 2

Watch the video below to learn about making nouns by adding the suffix -ness to adjectives.

Lesson 3

Today, you are going to recap the suffixes -ness, -ment and -ly by playing a game. To play the game, you need to remember the rules for adding these suffixes.

ness- this suffix is usually added onto the end of a word without having to change anything. However, if the root word ends in a 'y' then we need to change the 'y' to an 'i' before adding ness. For example:

happy -------- happiness

 

ment- this suffix is usually added onto the end of a word. There are exceptions to this rule, such as, when adding the suffix ment to root words that have more than one syllable and end in a consonant followed by a 'y', like 'merry', the 'y' is changed to an 'i', giving us 'merriment'. 

 

ly-  when adding this suffix to words, there are certain rules to follow.

  1. Just add -ly. e.g. gladly, sadly
  2. If the root word ends in a 'y', change the 'y' to an 'i' and then add 'ly'. For example happily.
  3. If the root word ends in '-le', the '-le' is changed to '-ly' [cuddly, gently].
