Tuesday

Using apostrophes to combine words

This topic is also covered on the BBC bitesize daily lessons, where there are 2 videos and 4 activities. You can either do the activities on the bitesize website or the ones below. (Year 4 - English - 28th April)  

 

Task 1: Watch the BBC Bitesize videos linked above.

When using contractions, we need to remember some key points:

  • helps you to shorten a phrase
  • use them when talking directly to a reader
  • creating a slogan or advertisement 
  • recognising the difference of when to use them (eg: its or it's)

 

For example: "I can't do it" shouted Mary.

 

 

Task 2: Make a list of contractions that have a double meaning (for example: she'd - she had - she would), then put them into context (for example: She'd like to go to the store - she would or, she'd completed the work by the time I had arrived - she had). 

 

Task 3: Make your own snap cards. Why not use the contractions you have learnt today to make your own snap cards to play with a family member in your house. For example one card might say 'wouldn't' and the other might say 'would not'. That would be a pair for snap (picture below).

 

Remember you can send your teacher your learning through the website link of year4@wilnecote-junior.staffs.sch.uk.
