Our new grammar skill is being able to use the 's' and 'es' to turn a singular noun into a plural noun. Take a look at the materials below which will give you guidance on what the 'rules' are and some activities to support further learning.
A skill that we are developing within our writing is using 'and' to extend a sentence (to provide extra information into a sentence). We already know that we should only use 'and' once in a sentence. Here is some information to support the teaching of this skill and some activities to support your child practising and applying this skill further.
We have been practising using capital letters at the start of a sentence and for a name of a person or a place. In every piece of writing that we do (irrelevant of what we are writing on), teaching staff are always aware of how your child uses capital letters. Please see the information regarding the teaching of using capital letters for names and the activities to follow up.
NB - on the activity, there are two options - 1 star is the easier option and 3 stars would be the more difficult option. The final page is the answers.
Using question marks is a skill that we are really good at if our task is specifically to write questions; however, we often forget to use them if we're doing an extended piece of writing. Please find the relevant information for teaching the skill of using question marks and activities to use alongside it to embed the learning.
NB - as with the other skills, if the sheet has 1 star, this is equivalent to 1 chilli; 2 stars being 2 chillies and 3 stars being 3 chillies - 3 being the most difficult.
