Today we are learning about the suffix –er and the suffix –est.

 

A suffix is added to the end of a word, eg, faster, biggest.

 

Words with suffix –er, eg faster, compare two things.

Ben can run faster than Tom.

Spain is warmer than Belper.

Notice both sentences use the word 'than' when comparing.

 

Words with the suffix –est shows the superlative (having the most of a particular quality) eg quickest.

 

A cheetah is the fastest land animal.

 

Have a look at the brief presentation.

Challenge:

 

Think about your home, family and friends. Can you write sentences that describes and compares your family?

 

Eg Mum is taller than Ben but Dad is the tallest.

 

I am older than Kate but Gran is the oldest.

 

Mum’s car is bigger than Dad’s car.
