Let's continue to think about inverted commas...
Have a conversation with someone at home - can you have a go at writing it out using inverted commas? (Don't forget to use a new line for each time the speaker changes!) Or how about creating a conversation between some of your toys? If you need to remind yourself of how inverted commas work, there is a presentation from last week at the bottom of this page that can help you.
21st April 2020
This week, see if you can remind yourself of what inverted commas are? Have a look at the presentation below to remind yourself. There are some activities on the presentation you can try.
Then at some point this week, also have a go at one of the pages of the activity document below - we recommend most of you try page 2.
See if you can have a go at some of the questions in the document below. Don't feel you have to print it out, you could just have a look and do the questions separately :)
This week we would like you to remind yourself about using a or an.
To start with you will need to remember...what is a consonant and what is a vowel?
Vowels are the letters: a, e, i, o, u. And consonants are the other letters in the alphabet.
Now have a look at the bottom of the page and you will find a picture that should help remind you of the rule. Then have a go at choosing 'a' or 'an' correctly for the words on the sheet below.
When you are next doing your writing make sure you think about correctly choosing 'a' or 'an'.
18.03.20 - This week we have been looking at time conjunctions (an example of some of them can be found in the picture at the bottom of the page).
See if you can have a go at writing some sentences using the following words: after, since, before, whenever, until. Remember, they can either be in the middle of the sentence or at the beginning.
