Autumn term spellings

As well as the year 4 word list that you can find in your reading records, we have been working on the following suffixes so far this term:

-sion (e.g. extend → extension)
-tion (donate → donation
-cian (magic → magician)

For a detailed explanation of the rules for these ‘shun’ sounds, visit this page.

Over the next few weeks we will move onto these prefixes:

il- (logical → illogical)
in- (accurate → inaccurate)

How many words can you list with these suffixes and prefixes?

 

-tion suffix

Over this fortnight, year 4 will be working on the -tion suffix. This will be the first section of work we complete on the [shun] sound, and the different ways of spelling it. Below are some words to get you started which you can practise at home (some aren’t technically suffixes, I know!).

mention
addition
multiplication
consideration
subtraction
position
