Teacher Specific Information

This Year 4 Synonym Matching Activity 1 presents children with a selection of synonym pairs that need to be matched together. Children are presented with a number of cards which need to be clicked to reveal the vocabulary underneath. The positioning of the cards needs to be memorised and the matching pairs selected in order to complete the game. This game covers the Year 3/4 objective to use root words to understand new words that they meet. 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.

National Curriculum Objectives

Apply their growing knowledge of root words, prefixes and suffixes (etymology and morphology) as listed in – see English appendix 1, both to read aloud and to understand the meaning of new words they meet.
