This ‘Make a Match’ grammar game is a fun way for pupils in Year 6 to revisit the subjunctive form, learning how sentences can be formed using this very formal language.

Pupils will match the cards with formal sentences and these rewritten using the subjunctive form.

The game can be played as a class or in small groups and is perfect for adult led interventions to revisit key knowledge and skills.

  • 2 heading cards (Not in the subjunctive form, subjunctive form)
  • 30 sentence cards

What is the subjunctive form?

The subjunctive form is used in very formal speech and writing. It can be used to suggest or demand, or indicate something that is desired, especially something that is important or urgent.

  • It is important that he attend. (Rather than: It is important that he attends.)

The subjunctive form can also be used to show hypothetical situations or wishes.

  • If she were rich, she would buy a zoo.
  • I wish I were a bird so I could fly above the clouds.
