Year 4 Using Suffixes

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 4 Using Suffixes activity consists of five separate challenges that test the use of suffixes from the Year 4 list. Pupils will select the correct suffix, find the root word, identify whether a suffix has been used correctly, add suffixes to words, and identify the incorrect suffixes within a paragraph.
