Spellings: Rule 22: cian or ssion suffixes

Use the powerpoint below to revise when to use the suffixes ‘cian’ or ‘ssion.’ Use examples from the last slide to practice spelling the words accurately, chosing the correct suffix. Don’t do all of them at once- 10 a day is plenty.

Quick Write: Sick sentences

Look at the picture in the powerpoint. The sentences are incredibly dull. How can you improve them?
