LO: I can understand and use prefixes.


This week we are going to look at some grammar that it is important we put into our writing. In order to do that, we need to understand how to use them and what they are for.

Today we are looking at prefixes. Prefixes are groups of letters that we add to the beginning of the root word to change its meanings. Each prefix changes the meaning in a different way. We are going to look at how the prefix changes the words and then put the words into sentences.

There are two tasks.

This should be a recap as we have looked at this previously in year 3. Use the power point to help remind you.
