It is VERY important that you are staying safe when you are using the internet. If you see something that upsets you or you know is wrong, you MUST tell an adult immediately! Please remember that you must always have an adult in the room with you when you are using the internet and you should never, ever go on the internet in your bedroom if you are alone!!!

BE SMART AND STAY SAFE!

English (9.30-10.00 am approx.)

Learning Objective: To use the suffixes er and est correctly.

 

*This lesson will be live. Please log onto Google Classroom at 9.30am.*

  

Last week, we spent some time learning about suffixes. A suffix is a letter or group of letters that can be added to the end of a word.

 

Today we are going to continue learning about the suffixes er and est. Remember, these suffixes are used to create adjectives to compare items/objects/people.

 

Look at the words below. These are some of the words we looked at last week. Can you read them all?

But what happens if the word already ends in e? You only need to add the r!

But what happens if the words ends in a y? If a word ends in y, you need to exchange the y for an i before adding this suffix. For example:

 

happy becomes happier

 

Task 1

Now add the suffix er to these words and write the words in your book. Don't forget to change the y for an I too. The first one has been done for you.

Now look carefully at these words:
