Spellings - W/c 1st June


Adding the suffix -ly to root words ending in 'le', 'ic' and  'y':















• The suffix ‘-ly’ starts with a consonant letter, so is added straight on to most root words.

• If the root word ends in consonant letter ‘y’, the ‘y’ is changed to ‘i’, but only if the word is more than one syllable.

• If the root words ends in ‘le’, the ‘le’ is changed to ‘ly’.

• If the root word ends with ‘ic’, then ‘-ally’ is added rather than just ‘-ly’

(exception: publicly).


If you find these words too difficult, please use the Phonics or Y2 Common Exception Words booklets that were sent home in your pack.
