Worksheet Overview

It is important to vary our writing to add interest.


If we find we have repeated words in our writing, we should look for alternatives.


To help you do this, you can use a thesaurus, which lists words which have the same meaning as other words. These are called synonyms.



In this activity, we'll be looking at different words that mean the same thing and can enhance the quality of our writing...
