Nouns (Common nouns)
Can you remember what a noun is? It’s a type of word - a person (animal), place or thing. Look at the powerpoint below to help you remember.
Challenge: Write your own sentences using different nouns. i.e. I have a pink bike and I ride to the park.
A proper noun is the specific name for an individual person, place or thing. Proper nouns always have a capital letter at the start. Just like your name or the name of your school (Ridgeway Primary School). This means wherever it is in a sentence, it will always have a capital letter (for its first letter only). Days of the week and months of the year are all common nouns, as are company names (Morrisons), specific buildings (Broad Street Mall) and landmarks (the London Eye).
Complete the proper noun worksheet below. You have to write your own sentences using capital letters for names.
Can you remember what a verb is? A word to describe an action – jump, sleep, laughing, crying, skip, went, read, gone, asked, fixed, helped, hugging. Look at the PowerPoint below to help you to recap what verbs are.
Now complete the below worksheet by finding the verbs in the sentences and rewriting them to make them more interesting. These are tricky so you will have to think hard. Challenge: In your book, write your own sentences using interesting verbs. i.e. Sam is playing with his friends and jumping on the long grass.

Can you remember what an adjective is? A describing word – pink, shiny, yellow, ugly, glorious, massive, fast, dark, frightening. Look at the PowerPoint below to help you to recap what adjectives are and how to identify them in sentences.
Now complete the below worksheet by finding the verbs in the sentences and rewriting them to make them more interesting. Like yesterday, these are quite difficult so you will have to focus and try hard. Challenge: In your book, write your own sentences using brilliant adjectives to add interesting description. i.e. Peter Pan loved to fight terrifying pirates and swim with the magical mermaids in the deep, blue ocean.
