What do kids need to know about Antonyms and Synonyms?

Firstly, they need to know what antonyms and synonyms are! 

Antonyms are words that are opposite in meaning, like angry and calm!

Synonyms are words that have the same meaning, like small and little. Top tip, an easy way to remember this is that synonyms and same (meaning) both begin with an ‘s’.

The worksheet has lots more examples of antonyms and synonyms, as well as some practice questions on how to use prefixes to make antonyms and how to use synonyms to make a sentence more interesting. Take a look for yourself.

What do your kids need to know about Compound Words?

Also to help with lesson 1 of the summer course, we have a worksheet about ‘compound words’. Lesson 1 covers a variety of vocabulary and spelling-based skills, such as definitions, homonyms, silent letters, and using prefixes and suffixes.

The term ‘compound word’ refers to a word made up of two or more root words which join together to make a new word with a new meaning, like hand + bag = handbag!

This worksheets tells you everything you need to know about:

  • Open compound words;
  • Closed compound words;
  • Hyphenated compound words;
  • Precise nouns; and
  • Compound adjectives.

There are examples and practice questions for each type of compound word, and lots of fun images to demonstrate them.
