Activities w.c 01.06.20
English Learning week beginning 1.6.20
This week, we are going to be practising some of the skills that make us really good writers.
The first of these is subordinate clauses. A clause is part of a sentence. A subordinate clause is a section of a sentence that wouldn't make sense on its own and only works as part of a sentence. In the sentence 'I played at the park until it was lunchtime', the subordinate clause is 'until it was lunchtime'. 'I played at the park' makes sense on its own, but 'until it was lunchtime' isn't a full sentence.
Subordinate clauses are joined to the main part of a sentence with a conjunction. We can remember the conjunctions to use with subordinate clauses by saying 'I SAW A WABUB':
I - if
S - since
A - as
W - when
A - although
W - while
A - after
B - before
U - until
B - because
Can you learn what 'I SAW A WABUB' stands for off by heart?
Now follow this online lesson to help you learn more about subordinating conjunctions.
We are also going to practise using apostrophes for possession. This means using an apostrophe to show that something belongs to someone. For example 'Mrs Butcher's dog' shows that the dog belongs to Mrs Butcher. 'Mrs Ladd's drawing' shows that the drawing belongs to Mrs Ladd. If the person who owns the thing already ends in an s, we don't add another s, just the apostrophe - 'Mr Davies' bike'. Can you write some sentences about the things that belong to people in your family?
This online lesson will help you practise using apostrophes for possession.
Lastly for this week, we'd love to know what you are reading at home. Remember, reading is so important for all areas for learning. Could you write a book review? You could use one from the website, or why not make up your own? Remember to include the title, the author, the setting and the characters. Explain why you did or didn't enjoy the book. Have you read any other books by the same author, or ones that have a similar theme?
Can you have a go at writing your own story using this idea? You may want to use the sentence openers below to help you :)
