"Sharing joy and hope in the community."




L.O: To understand and use prefixes.


Warm up: idiom – ‘Let the cat out of the bag’ – Tell a secret you shouldn’t.


Look at the spelling of unicorn – it has the prefix uni meaning one. Can you find 5 or more words that also start with the prefix uni? What does it mean if a word starts with the prefix bi? Or the prefix tri? Can you find 5 or more words for each of these?


(pre means before, so a prefix means to add something before the word to change the meaning)


Create various funny sentences using some of the prefix words you have investigated.
