Antonyms
Right is an antonym of wrong.

Antonyms

This quiz focusses on antonyms. It is designed to allow KS1 children to spot connections between words and identify the opposite word or antonym. This quiz will help expand their vocabulary, literacy and all-round general English knowledge.

Sometimes we need to disagree and to do so, we need to know the opposite word. An antonym is a word that is opposite to another, like the opposite to up is down.

    Being rich isn't always about money; sometimes you can be rich with love.
  3. What is an antonym?
    An antonym is a word that is the complete opposite to another word. The word 'cat' isn't an exact opposite of 'dog' even though they are completely different animals. An antonym needs to be the exact opposite.
