Red Class Year 3/4 spelling investigation.
Today we looked at adding suffixes to verbs to change the meaning of the words. We recapped the suffixes: s, es, er, ed and ing.
The homework task is to see how many new words they can make by adding the suffixes, e.g. float, floated, floating, floats.
You might need to remind your child that some words drop the e or double the consonant, e.g. smile, smiling, smiled or clap, clapping, clapped.
