These SPaG prefix posters are a great way of reminding Y3/4 children of the definitions of prefixes.
Each background cell contains a different prefix. The smaller cells contain words which can be trimmed and stuck onto a prefix background. The children can be involved in choosing which background to add a word to.
Alternatively, you could display the words already on the backgrounds, but display some incorrectly. The children can then be challenged to notice any words that are not on the correct background.
Trimmable example words are included, providing the opportunity to make this poster into an interactive prefix activity, which can be added to as you cover these prefixes in class.
