Year 4 Antonym Matching Activity 1

Teacher Specific Information

Use this Year 4 Anotonym Matching Activity 1 to expand your pupils’ vocabulary. Children are presented with a selection of cards, whose position need to be memorised in order to match the antonym pairs. This game includes some words taken from the Year 3/4 spelling list and covers the Year 3/4 objective to recognise how words are related by meaning.

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.

If you would like to access additional resources which link to this matching game, you can purchase a subscription for only £5.31 per month on our sister site, Classroom Secrets.
