Literacy 1

 

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. 

 

Now complete the below worksheet by cutting and sticking the pictures into the correct category and column. Keep recapping what a noun is.

Challenge: Write your own sentences using different nouns. i.e. I have a pink bike and I ride to the park.

Literacy 2

 

Proper Nouns

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).

 

 

Here are some examples of proper nouns alongside the common noun.

Complete the proper noun worksheet below. You have to write your own sentences using capital letters for names.

Literacy 3

 

Verbs

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.

Adjectives

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.

Nouns, verbs and adjectives 

Recap everything that you have learnt this week. Nouns, verbs and adjectives. Today you are going to use all of these words. Look at the summer picture worksheet (below) and write different words in correct columns/lists to identify and describe elements of it. Some have already been done to help you. Challenge: Write your own sentences using some of the words in the lists. Can you use one of your interesting nouns, adjectives and verbs in one sentence?  

School is CLOSED on 1st June to allow staff to prepare for reopening. School will reopen to some pupils from 2nd June - if your child has been allocated a place in school you will have received a letter.
