Year 2 - Suffix less
You can practise spelling by thinking of words and seeing if 'less' can be added to them.

Year 2 - Suffix less

This 'Suffix less' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on words that can have this addition. The words used for this spelling quiz have been taken from and added to those suggested in the National Curriculum.

Certain words can have the letters ‘less’ added to the end of them to change their meaning. This suffix means you are lacking or don’t have the root word (the word it has attached itself to). Test your spelling of these words in this quiz.
