Squeebles Phonics, Level 5
Level 5 dedicated to suffixes (word endings). So that children are clear as to how the root word changes with the addition of a suffix, in most tests we've included both the root word (eg. 'happy') and the newly formed word ('happiest'), even though your child may not find the root word challenging to spell correctly.
Over the course of 6 tests, the following suffixes are included: s, es, ies, ied, ier, est,ily, ment, ed, ing, er, ful, ness, en, ly.
