Prefixes and suffixes

A root word is the simplest form of a word. It can have beginnings and endings added to it. When we combine root words with beginnings or endings, it creates new words. These are called prefixes and suffixes.

Prefixes and suffixes can something have their own meaning

E.g. Re means again
Tri means three
Un means not

We can read and write complex words when we see the links between known words and new and when we use knowledge about word families.
