This week, we have learnt that prefixes are letter strings that go on the front of a word to change the meaning of the word. We have been learning about the prefixes 're' and 'un'. Can you think of any examples of words that include this prefix?
We then combined all of our knowledge and found words which included a prefix and a suffix on the root word. For example; recalled, unbolted, reconnecting.
Finally, we have been recapping what consonants and vowels are and have been highlighting these in the words we have written.

We have continued to focus on suffixes, this week learning more about 's' and 'es' - can you remember some words that include these suffixes?
We discussed what these suffixes mean and how they are letters at the end of a word to change the meaning of the word.
We also learnt how 'foot' becomes 'feet', 'man' becomes 'men' and 'sheep' stays the same regardless of how many there are!

This week, our focus has been on the suffixes ‘ing’ and ‘ed’ – can you remember some words that include these suffixes?
We discussed what a suffix is and how these suffixes are used to change the word.
We learnt that we have a vowel followed by a consonant, we have to double to consonant before adding the ‘ing’ or ‘ed’ suffix.
