Year 1 | Adding the Suffixes ‘er’ and ‘est’ Worksheets

In these Year 1 adding the suffixes “er” and “est” worksheets, we’re diving into the world of suffixes “er” and “est”, and your young learners are in for a word-tastic adventure! They’ll start with a list of words and have a creative task at hand – to rewrite these words and add “er” and “est”, turning them into new words. For example, they might transform “near” into “nearer” and then “nearest”. It’s like a word-building puzzle! But that’s not all – sentences are waiting to be explored. Your class will read sentences featuring two words with the “er” or “est” suffix, and they’ll play word detectives, underlining the correct word to ensure the sentence sounds just right and grammatically correct.

This worksheet isn’t just about adding suffixes; it’s a fantastic opportunity for children to enhance their writing skills by mastering the use of the “er” and “est” suffixes as they will witness firsthand how the meaning of words can be transformed. It’s a journey into the world of words, where they can have some wordy fun while learning!

Our Year 1 grammar and writing worksheets are aligned with the KS1 primary national curriculum and can be used with your ideas for learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
