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

Mrs Willis's Group - or digraph
This week, you will be learning the digraphs: or, ur, and ar. Today, we will learn about or.
Can you watch this video and have a go at writing some words containing the or digraph?
Can you choose one an 'or' word and write a sentence? Here is mine:
Baby pandas are so tiny when they are born.
