    • Hi Amyrose765,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :)
      I've taken a look at this resource and when I downloaded it all the words stars were green and the mats were different colours. Could you try downloading a fresh copy and let me know whether it works this time?

  • I intend to use it as a working wall type display. I think its great that they are colour coded...children will be able to choose an adjective by looking for the colour that matches the poster. I just can't seem to download it.

  • The following words are spelled incorrectly: embarrassed, meagre and conceive. A great SPAG resource otherwise. I have cut into circles to save time.

  • I like this activity but shouldn't all the words be in the same colour? Pupils aren't learning how to sort different word types, they are just sorting by colour. Will print in black and white.
