Together Everyone Achieves More. Journey to Learning

Week 3 ance

Learning intention:

To revise the long vowel sounds.
Suggest words containing the following vowel sounds.


Introduction

Lets revise the ‘soft <c> spellings for the /s/ sound: <ce>, <ci>, and <cy>.

The suffix <-ant makes adjectives and nouns

e.g important and assistant


Look at these words. Replace the final <t>in each word with <ce>,to make new abstract nouns with the spelling <-ance>.

Remember that abstract nouns are things that do not have physical forms, like ideas, feelings or actions.

 

fragrant - fragrance- if something is fragrant, you can say it has fragrance.

significant

abundant

flamboyant 

reluctant

 

Can you think of a verb that ends in (e)?

e.g. guide, ignore

 

What is the rule for adding -ance?
