Day One

Session One: Wellbeing Journal and English

 

English- What are suffixes?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z66nv82 

Suffix: A letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning.

Sometimes they change the original word's spelling.

 

When adding a suffix you might have to double the last letter.

For example

When adding -ed to drop you also double the p so it becomes dropped.

 

Some suffixes have specific uses.

For example:

Adding ing can change a noun into a verb, like garden to gardening.

Using the suffix ed can turn a verb to the past tense, like jump becomes jumped.
