Hi everyone,


I hope that you are all safe and that you are managing to do some work.


This week in Phonics/SPAG we were recapping suffixes. On Monday we learnt the suffix '-s and -es' and what these do to a word when added, can anyone remember? E.g cow -- cows

                                                                  wish -- wishes

That's right these suffixes make the words mean 'more' or the posh word is plural.


On Tuesday we then looked at two more suffixes '-ed and -ing'. Can anyone remember what happens to words when we add these suffixes? E.g rain -- rained -- raining

                             help -- helped  -- helping 


That's right it changes the tense of the word, so words ending with the suffix '-ed' become past tense something that has already happened. Words ending with the suffix '-ing' move to the present tense, its what's happening now.


Today I would like you to have a look at the work sheets below there is more work on adding suffixes.

Worksheet 1 is adding '-ed and -ing'

Worksheet 2 is adding '-er and -est'


I would love to see how you get on with these, so if you can then please send them to email address and I will get back to you.


I hope you have a wonderful, 


Take care year 3 and I'll see you soon


Mrs Jacques
