Spellings!

This week, why not have a go at revising the prefixes in-, im-, il- and ir-?

  1. What is a prefix? Tell your parents, brother, sister or grandparents over video chat? If you can’t remember, this video clip should remind you: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-wonderful-words-prefixes/zknd7nb

2. Can you match the following root words with the correct prefix: in-, im-, il- or ir-?

legal, possible, regular, accurate, relevant, perfect, legible

HINT! Remember the following rules:

Use im- if the root word begins with m or p, use il- if the root word begins with l and use ir- if the root word begins with r.
