L.C. To use suffixes to understand meaning.

We have been looking at the following prefixes


 -sion   -ssion   -ation   -cian


What sound do all of these make?


When we add these suffixes (-sion, -ssion and -ation), what happens to the meaning of the root word?


How is -cian different to the others? What happens when -cian is added to the end of a word?



Think about the following words, how does the meaning change? 


decide    -   decision


admit   -   admission


decorate    -    decoration


music    -    musician



On Seesaw, you have been given some root words and new words. Write down the meaning of the root word and the new word.
