Year 5 | Verb Prefixes Worksheets

In these Year 5 verb prefixes worksheets, your pupils are shown a bank of prefixes alongside a series of challenges featuring a blank space followed by a specific verb, followed by another blank space. The task is for children to refer to the bank of prefixes, adding each prefix in front of the given verb, and then rewriting the word to reflect the changed meaning. For instance, “mis + behave = misbehave”. Following this, learners encounter sentences with missing gaps where they add a prefix to verbs, transforming the sentences’ meanings. As a final task, children complete a table with four columns titled with the prefixes “de”, “over”, “mis”, and “dis”. Their challenge is to provide examples for each prefix, such as “defrost”.

This comprehensive worksheet seamlessly integrates verbs and prefixes, offering a dynamic approach to expanding your class’s vocabulary. It equips them with providing their own broader range of words, enhancing their capacity for precise and varied language use in their writing tasks and storytelling.

Our Year 5 grammar primary worksheets are linked with the KS2 national curriculum and will support your primary learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
