Letters and Sounds

Phase 6

This week, we will learn about adding the suffixes _er and _est to words.  Do you know what a suffix is? 

suffix is a letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning. 


For example, high + est = highest  or high + er = higher.


We could say:

That mountain is so high.   Is the Shanghai Tower higher than The Shard?  Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world.


Tasks - PowerPoint + Worksheet:

Can you watch the PPT attached and then add _er or _est onto the ends of these words?

Message for Grown-ups:


I am going to start matching our weekly spellings to our Phonics for both Phase 6 and Mrs Willis's Group.  If your child is in Mrs Willis's Phonics Group, I have sent you a text message to let you know. Thank you everyone for all of this, it's not easy, I know.
