Monday 8th June

Recap what we learned last week on suffixes. We use the suffix 'ous' by replacing some letters in words and adding the suffix to change their meaning. e.g. danger - dangerous

Adding the suffix 'ous' turns a word from a noun into an adjective. In the example above, the word danger is the noun and the word dangerous is the adjective. 


Change the nouns below by either adding or replacing the correct letters with the suffix 'ous' to change their meaning. 


miracle = 

adventure = 

fury = 

courage =

envy =

space =

fame = 



Now define the new words and put them into sentences e.g. 'Her memory is nothing short of miraculous'.
