Thank you so much for this resource. My pupils had already learned some adjectives to describe teachers and the school subjects but I was looking for a way to mix new adjectives with school subjects and explain grammar agreements so that they could build sentences on why they like or dislike a certain subject. This is a fantastic centrepiece for the discussion!

I really enjoyed using this resource - I started with a review of the adjectives and there are a good range to encourage pupils to move away from their "safe" favourites. We then looked at the different opinion sentences and the pupils discussed the differences. This is not new to my able year 8 so we just confirmed that we all understood the differences and why. We then did the whole class moving around the room and the pupils gave me their justified opinion from where they stood. Once they had returned to their seats we modelled the speaking activity and they did this in small group. The pupils were given the writing as homework and I edited this a bit. Overall a really good lesson and one where the pupils really felt that they had made progress.
