LO: I can understand the spelling rules for using suffixes.
Today we will look into how we spell using the suffixes. Similar to when we use ly as a suffix there are rules we need to follow when adding them.
Follow the power point to teach you the rules and then there are two tasks to complete to help you practise using the rules.
If you are adding a suffix to a words that ends in a silent ‘e’, the word loses the silent ‘e’ when the suffix is added E.g. nice + es = bikes.
If you add a suffix that begins with a vowel to a word:
The final consonant is doubled before the vowel suffix is added.
