Free Suave Resources

We hope you enjoy our weekly resources. The aim of these resources is to support the development of a wide range of rich vocabulary. Repeated and varied exposures across the curriculum are key to embed words.

As always, use your knowledge of your class to decide whether each resource is appropriate and how much support pupils might need. Please note that examples given are not exhaustive and some of the words will have multiple meanings. We would recommend keeping an eye out for teaching opportunities when these variations come up.

The resources are designed as teacher led starters or brain breaks for a few minutes of fun.

We’ll add a new set of resources each Friday.
