A criss-cross puzzle has a grid like a crossword, but there are no clues. Instead you must fit given words into the grid. Can you put these Y3/Y4 spelling words into the correct slot on the criss-cross grid?
In these sentences, look for the words with a spilt digraph. Remember, you are looking for a word with an ‘e’ at the end that changes a short vowel sound into a long vowel sound (for example, mad becomes made).
These words are from some of the topics studied in Year 3 and 4, but they can be hard to spell! Can you match the correct spelling with the correct definition?
Hidden in this wordsearch are some of the words from the Year 3/4 curriculum spelling list. Can you find them and highlight them?
Work out which prefix goes with each word. Then write a similar sentence for each word, once the prefix has been added, to show its new meaning.
These words have a double consonant in them. Fill in the missing double letters to complete the word.
What words do the picture clues below refer to? Draw a circle round the “c” that sounds like an /s/ in each word.
All these words include the same sound (/ai/) but it is represented by ‘ei’,‘eigh’ or ‘ey’. Underline the groups of letters making the /ai/ sound in each word, then cut the words out and put them in the correct column. Once you think you know the words, ask someone to dictate these sentences to you. Write them down and then check to see if you got the spellings right.
Read these words and say them out loud. The ‘y’ in the words makes three different sounds: /i/ as in cygnet, /igh/ as in high, /y/ as in yellow. Can you group them into the three sound columns below?
Words ending -ly are used to describe how something is done; they are called adverbs. Cut out these cards and match up the root words on the left with the suffix -ly on the right, then decide which words go in each sentence.
Most words longer than one syllable that have the stress on the last syllable when you say them and end with a single consonant, we double the last letter when adding the suffix -ing. Can you cut out the jumbled-up cards and make the five -ing words? Then see if you can fit them into the sentences.
