This grammar Bingo game is a fun way to support pupils in Y3 to identify words that belong to the word family.

They will recognise the root word in words that include a range of prefixes and suffixes.

The game can be played as a class or in small groups and is perfect for adult led interventions to revisit key knowledge and skills.

This resource pack includes:

  • Bingo caller cards
  • 10 bingo cards
  • Teacher’s notes

What is a word family?

The words in a word family are normally related to each other by a combination of morphology, grammar and meaning. They share the same root word, which could be anywhere within the word.

What is a root word?

A root word is a word that can stand alone. When using a dictionary, we sometimes have to look for the root word (or words) of the words we are interested in.

Examples of word families

  • wild: wildly, wilderness, wildest
  • logic: logical, logically, illogical
  • compute: computed, computing, computerise

National Curriculum English programme of study links

Pupils should understand that word families are based on common words, showing how words are related in form and meaning (for example, solve, solution, solver, dissolve, insoluble)
