This week, the focus is spellings. For the activities below, think about the strategies that you use in class. Do you segment the word, create a spelling pyramid, or perhaps create a funny rhyme using the letters from the word.
We use pronouns to replace nouns. This allows us to make our writing more interesting and prevents us from repeating ourselves.
There are many different pronouns. Below is a table to help you.
Use the following link as another resource to help you understand pronouns and how to use them:

Monday 4th May-Apostrophes for possession
We use subordinate clauses to create complex sentences. They extend a simple sentence by adding more information to the sentence. You can identify the subordinate clause by identifying the conjunction.
Remember: Subordinate clauses can also be written at the start f a sentence (and therefore become a fronted adverbial phrase).
Use the information below to help you and then have a go at the work (PDF copies will be at the bottom of this section for printing).

Determiners are usually words that can be found before the noun. They determine certain things to do with the noun - how many you have (quantifiers), specific and non specific (a, an and the) and possession (relating to who the noun belongs to).
Please find a progression of activities below relating to 'a' and 'an'. Remember, the general rule is that you would use 'a' before a consonant and 'an' before a vowel. However, there are exceptions! It depends on how the first letter of the noun sounds. If it sounds like the letter name or sounds like a consonant, 'a' will need to be used. If there is a silent letter at the start of the noun, e.g hour, you will need to use 'an'.
Activity 1 - Use 'a' and 'an' correctly to fill in the missing words.
Activity 2 - Identify the correct determiner and then have a go at writing your own sentences
Activity 3 - Exceptions to the rule
Read the paragraph. Can you spot the mistakes?
