Prefixes
The restaurant was fabulous but the food was overpriced.

Prefixes

Time for a fun KS2 English quiz all about prefixes! Prefixes are special letters added at the start of words. They change the meaning of the root word. 'Exhibit', 'expand', and 'extend' all have the 'ex-' prefix, meaning 'out'. Learning prefixes helps you understand new words.

Some prefixes are words on their own, like 'over'. Add it to words to make new ones, like overweight, overpriced, and overcook. Can you think of more?

Test your word skills with this cool English quiz!
