This week we’ve been looking at the rules for when we add -er or -est to a root word. For example, where there is a y, change it to an i when you add the suffix. Where there is a short vowel sound such as in hot, double up on the consonant: hot -> hotter.

Practise adding the two suffixes to the following root words:

nice     late     rude     brave     happy     funny     hot     write     tall     ripe
