Key Skills: Spelling

This week, we are going to double up on our spellings and look at 20 words which all use the suffix -ation to turn a verb into a noun. Today, I'd like you to think about what is the root word of each of the spellings and see if you can sort them into three key groups based on any patterns that you can see between the root words.
Extension: If you'd like to, you can test yourself on Spelling Frame. This breaks the words down into chunks to make the spellings easier to sound out.
