This 20 minute activity develops pupils understanding of the etymological origins of words which has been shown to accelerate reading and spellings ages of pupils whilst building their confidence with more sophisticated vocabulary.

This is one session of six that aims to develop pupils’ understanding of words that have the prefix/suffix ‘-graph’.

They are asked to deconstruct the words into their Greek roots enabling them define the words which they then use to complete and fill the gap activity, eventually tackling the final task which is a word grid.

This comes with a teacher instruction slide at the start of the PowerPoint making it easy to follow and differentiate/personalise.
