Friday 8th January


Friday 8th January

L.O.: To explore expanded noun phrases


Warm up: Say whether these words could be adjectives, verbs, nouns, or adverbs:

smooth, table, elephant, running, carefully, ran, tall, green, Preston, slowly.


Why does 'Preston' have a capital letter?

Remember, they could belong to more than one group, depending on where and how they are used in the sentence. For example: 'The girl was dancing.' (Dancing is a verb here). 'The girl wore her dancing shoes.' (Dancing is an adjective here - it describes the shoes). 


Follow the link below for the main lesson. Think about how much writing you normally produce in a lesson at school. Try to add further examples after the video lessons. Today, you could find a picture in a book and write expanded noun phrases about what you can see. 

Reading: After completing your 15 minutes of reading today, design a new front cover for a book of your choice. What key information do you need to add to it? 



L.O.: To construct pictograms


Warm up: Practise your times tables. Choose from the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times table. Remember to try the links on our class page for maths games, such as TT Rockstars.
