These worksheets, covering the prefix ‘re-’, are an excellent way for children in Years 3 and 4 to revise and practise this spelling pattern.

The worksheets include five different activities in which children look at spelling patterns, identify misspelt words and apply their spellings in context. They can be used within lessons, as an assessment or as a homework task.

This primary resource is divided into five sections:

  • Tips
    Put a tick or cross in the box to show whether the prefix ‘re-’ can be added to these root words
  • Check
    Circle the word that matches the correct meaning, and place a list of words into the correct blank space in the example sentences
  • Use
    Use the images provided to write a sentence each for the words ‘reconnect’ and ‘replay’
  • Change
    Read each sentence and change the underlined word or phrase for a synonym that begins with the prefix ‘re-’
  • Apply
    Write a short passage about the image given. How many of the words ‘redo’, ‘rejoin’, ‘redecorate’ and ‘reassemble’ can you include in your writing?
