KS 2 Writing Posters: Synonyms – Powerful Verbs

This pack contains 11 interactive posters to inspire more effective writing from children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Each features an everyday ('boring') verb, or verb phrase, surrounded by more powerful synonyms, illustrated with eye-catching images.

There are two versions of each poster:
* Posters with text - the pictures are labelled with the verbs they are illustrating.

* Posters without text
The pictures on these posters are not labelled. Children should look at the images and try to identify the verbs they are illustrating.

Pupil worksheets are also included, with spaces for children to come up with their own synonyms and find, or draw, illustrations for them.
