Main activity

Today we are looking once again at antonyms (words which are opposite in meaning). 


Last week, we learned that we could create some antonyms by adding the prefix dis

e.g.  the opposite of agree is disagree

        the opposite of advantage is disadvantage


In today's work, we will be looking at other prefixes including un, in and im

e.g.  the opposite of happy is unhappy

        the opposite of visible is invisible

        the opposite of possible is impossible


Watch today's video to find out more about your tasks!


To get started, log in to Education City  Use the "Perfect Prefixes" Learn Screen to revise what we have already learned and then have a go at the "Perfect Prefixes Part 1" activity.


Then download today's written activity (choose either the higher level or lower level) and use your knowledge of prefixes to help you complete each section.


We would love to see your finished work so please take a photograph of your page and email it to your teacher!
