This KS2 English quiz challenges you on prefixes. Prefixes are letters placed in front of words. A prefix is a part of a word which comes before a root word, changing its meaning. 'Exhibit', 'expand' and 'extend' all have the prefix 'ex-', which means 'out'. Knowing prefixes can help you to work out the meaning of words you've never seen.
Some prefixes are words in their own right such as 'over'. This little word can be added to lots of other words to create new words. Some examples are overweight, overpriced and overcook. Can you think of any more?
