This week we are add the suffixes -ing, -er, -ed and -est (where they make a correct word).
We are adding -ing and -ed to:
hike, shine, hope, take, write, make, like, ride.
We need to take off the 'e' before adding the suffix. Show pupils that the ‘e’ is taken off before adding the endings
(Look at exceptions: made, shone and took)
We are also adding -er and -est to adjectives that end in an 'e' (with a constant before it).
nice, late, ripe, rude, brave
Again, we need to take off the e to add the suffix.
