This resource pack is designed to provide a range of activities to support the teaching of synonyms. It could either be used as a lesson to introduce or revise the subject or as a means of consolidating various concepts.

This resource pack should enable pupils to:

  • understand what is meant by the term "synonym"
  • identify synonyms
  • use a conventional or online thesaurus

Included in this pack are a selection of supporting worksheets that can be adapted to suit the age range of the pupils being taught.

This resource pack is designed to support the KS2 English national curriculum for Wales.
