LEARNING to make a difference

Week 1

This week’s spelling rule is adding the suffix –ful and –less.


A suffix is a group of letters added on to the end of a word to make a new word with a different meaning.  –ful and –less are added to words to make adjectives, which can be used to describe people or things.


-ful means ‘full of’

-less means ‘without’


Eg. care + ful = careful

care + less = careless


Task 1: How many different adjectives can you think of that end in the suffix – ful or – less?


Task 2: Write a single word with –ful or –less to complete each sentence.
