WALT- add the suffix ‘ing’ to words.


Starter- Fill in the vowels and  consonants table.


Task- We have been learning the different rules for adding the suffix ‘ing’ to words.

A suffix is a letter or letters added to the end of a word to make another word. For example, adding ‘ing’ at the end of ‘sail’ makes ‘sailing’.

Vowels are the letters ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’ and ‘u’, all other letters in the alphabet are consonants.

Vowels can make a short sound (for example, ‘a’ as in tap) or a long sound (for example, ‘a’ as in ‘tape’).



Today, we will be learning to add ‘ing’ to words with a long vowel sound.


Add ‘ing’ to the words below-

  1. Rain
  2. Reach
  3. Grow
  4. Show
  5. Play
  6. Stay
  7. Go

Put these words into sentence!

STS: remember to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, adjectives, verbs and conjunctions in your sentences.

Adjectives- describing words, such as colourful.

Verbs- doing words, such as playing.

Conjunction- a word that joins together words, phrases, or parts of sentences. For example, and, because and when.
