This spelling game allows children to practise adding the suffixes -s and -es to verbs and nouns.

Previous learning

To get the most out of the game the children will need to have begun learning about the generalisations related to adding the suffixes -s and -es to words.


  • Each player or team needs ten counters (each player needs a different colour) and a piece of paper or small whiteboard and pen.
  • Read any of the words on the beans around the beanstalks that the children may find difficult to decode.
  • Read the prompt sheet together and model adding a suffix to run, dish and berry.
