This week, we’ve been learning about words that start with the prefixes ‘auto’ and ‘tele’. These words, which link to our Latin learning (kind of), come from Greek. Auto means ‘self’ and tele means ‘at a distance‘. Lots of words in the English language have these prefixes in and learning these words is another good way to practise our spellings. This week, we’d like children to learn how to spell these words…

automatic           autobiography         autograph          automotive          television           telegraph           teleport           telescope

We’ll test ourselves on Friday 11 February 2022 to see how we’ve got on.
