Good morning everyone!  Well done for your first day of home learning.  Let’s get started on day 2!



For your literacy task, first of all look at the ‘ing’ words taken from the story.  A suffix is a group of letters added to the end of a word. The suffix ‘ing’ has been added to roots word.  Can you find each root word to begin with.  Then you need to look at the rule when adding ‘ing’.  Here are the different rules:

Just add ‘ing’ to the root word
If the root word ends with ‘e’, drop the ‘e’ and add ‘ing’.
Double the consonant and add ‘ing’.


Can you match the correct prefix to the root word.  If you are unsure, use a dictionary to help you.
