Phrase and definition cards are supplied in two sizes – for sorting and display; whilst worksheets encourage pupils to use their inference skills to work out what these commonly used phrases mean.

An answer sheet, linking phrases to their definitions, is included.

  • Common idiom cards
    The cards are presented on separate pieces of paper so that they can be shared amongst pupils in a group. Also included are larger versions of the idioms so that they can be used for display. Children could discuss the meaning of these phrases out of context.
  • Common idiom definitions
    These definition cards could be matched up to the common idiom. These definitions are available in a small size for sharing at a table and also for display.
