Noun suffix ‘es’ (x and s words)

 

What does plural mean? Plural means there is more than one of something.

 

When there is just one object, we call that singular.

When there is more than on object, we call that plural.

 

Singular --> 1 fox

Plural --> 2 foxes

 

Often, we just add an ‘s’ to the end of a word to show that there is more than one of something, but for some words we add ‘es’ instead. We add ‘es’ to the end of words that end in a ‘hiss’ sound – words like box and bus.

 

1 box --> 2 boxes

1 bus --> 3 buses

 

These words would sound very strange if we just add an ‘s’ to the end! Try saying these words aloud! Do they make sense?

 

2 boxs                   3 buss

 

Remember: words that end in an ‘x’ or and ‘s’ need ‘es’ added to the end of the word to show that there is more than one!

 

Now, say these words aloud. They make much more sense!

 

2 boxes                3 buses

Exclamation Marks

What are punctuation marks? Punctuation marks are the marks that you see at the end of sentences in writing.

 

Why are they important? Punctuation marks tell the reader when to take a breath and how the sentence should be read.

 

What punctuation marks do you know? You might have thought of full stops, question marks or exclamation marks.

 

Most sentences end with a full stop. The sentence after a full stop will always start with a capital letter. 

 

Tilly was a lovely dog. Every morning Tilly and her owner went for a walk.

 

An exclamation mark ends a sentence that shows a strong feeling, like surprise or anger. They can also show that someone is raising their voice or shouting. Exclamation marks are often used in speech.The sentence after an exclamation mark always starts with a capital letter.

 

Get out! You are not allowed to go in that cupboard!

The Prefix -Un

 

What is a prefix?

 

A prefix is a group of letters that goes before the root word. They change the meaning of the word.

 

Can you spot what is different about these words and sort them into two groups?

               

tie                                           unkind                                  unzip                                     happy                                   kind                                       zip                          untie                     unhappy

 

How does adding un- change the meaning of these words?

 

When un- is added to adjectives (describing words) it means ‘not’.

 

Kind --> unkind (not kind)

Happy --> unhappy (not happy)

Zip --> unzip (undo the zip)

Used --> unused (not been used)
