Adjectives and synonyms

Date: 2nd Jun 2015 @ 7:00pm

This is for my booster kids for writing however any Y5 child can contribute if you want to!

I'm going to start with an adjective - can you reply with 3 synonyms for the adjective and then list one for another child to add to?

For example I might start with 'odorous' and you might reply with pungent, acrid and putrid. You might then list you own adjective for someone else to reply to. 

My adjective is: wonderful     

Please reply with 3 synonyms for this.  Good luck.
