Consonants and Vowels Year 3 Grammar: ‘a’ or ‘an’

Some letters in the alphabet are vowels and some letters are consonants.

The VOWELS are: a, e, i, o, and u.

All the other letters in the alphabet are called CONSONANTS.

  b    c    d   e   f g    h   i    j k   l   m   n   o   p  q  r  s  t   u   v  w   x   y   z

 

Look at the words below carefully.

Decide if they start with a vowel or a consonant.

 

baby        elephant         ant        table

apple         book          pencil         tree 

bed          orange          cat           owl

 

Copy down the words on a piece of paper, making two lists.

The first list should be all the words that start with a vowel.

The second list should be all the words that start with a consonant.

 

*Usually if a word begins with a consonant you use 'a' before it.*

Eg. I can see a  lion.

*If a word begins with a vowel you use 'an'  before it.*

Eg. I can see an alligator.

 

Insert either 'a'  or 'an' into these sentences to make them correct.

Write the complete correct sentence on your piece of paper.

 

It’s.………apple.

 

It’s……….juicy apple.

 

It’s……….owl.

 

It’s……….wise owl.

 

It’s……….bed.

Tense: Past, Present and Future

 

When you are talking or writing you have to think carefully about WHEN something happens.

 

Verbs (doing words) come in three tenses: past, present, and future. The past is used to describe things that have already happened (e.g., earlier in the day, yesterday, last week, three years ago). The present tense is used to describe things that are happening right now. The future tense describes things that have yet to happen (e.g., later, tomorrow, next week, next year, three years from now).

 

Example:       PAST:                    I ate a sandwich yesterday.               

                     PRESENT:              I am eating a sandwich.                   

                     FUTURE:                I will eat a sandwich tomorrow

 

          ( the verb =   ate,    eating   and  eat )

 

Now grab a pencil and piece of paper and try this worksheet. 

 

 

Monday 8th June 2020

 

In today's lesson, we will look at the use of suffixes and prefixes.

A suffix is a few letter put at the end of a word to change the meaning of the word.

 

For examples:

 

confuse    -   confusion      (sion)

kind  -  kindness      (ness)

celebrate  -   celebration     (ion)

 

A prefix is a few letters added at the beginning of word to change its meaning.

 

For example

happy - unhappy    (un)

do      - redo           (re)

honest - dishonest  (dis)

 

Watch these BBC Bitesize videos which explains about prefixes and suffixes.
