Year 3 Synonym Matching Activity 3

Teacher Specific Information

Year 3 Synonym Matching Activity 3 provides an opportunity for pupils to increase their vocabulary range in a fun way with this matching pairs game. They can even add an extra competitive element by repeating the game and trying to beat their previous time.

Whilst we know the terminology and objectives for ‘synonyms’ and ‘antonyms’ are not introduced until Year 6, we are aware that teachers in other year groups also cover this in order to expand children’s range of vocabulary.
