'Lila and the Secret of Rain'


Using suffixes.

Suffixes are a letter or group of letters added to the ending of words to change their meaning or function. 

In Year 1, children need to be familiar with the suffixes -ed, -er and -est and how these change the meaning of the root word. Look at the words below from the story - add a suffix to change the meaning of each word and see if you can use the new work in a sentence.
