Speech Marks

   “Speech Marks

We use speech marks when we are writing to show what somebody has said. It is very important to also write who has been talking.

Example : “I love this book,” said Lucy

Put the speech marks in the correct places in the sentences below:

1) What time is it? asked Angel.
2) I want chicken for dinner, said Monica.
3) Can I play on the computer Mum? asked Kayla.
4) I would like an ice cream please, said Sarah.
5) That costs £12 said the shop-keeper.

Ready, Steady, Blog!

We are pleased to announce that we have now rectified the technical issues that led to the delay in our class blogs being active and linked to our school website.

Now that we are back with a bang, don’t forget to check in with us regularly to see how well we are achieving across the curriculum and to keep up to date with all the happenings in each class.

We look forward to welcoming your comments and will be announcing a ‘Blog of the Week’ in each newsletter.

So what is left to say other than… ready, steady, blog!

Windrush

In class to celebrate Black History Month, we have been learning about the Windrsuh generation. The Windrush generation refers to the immigrants who were invited to the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Caribbean countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados. The name derives from the ship MV Empire Windrush, which on June 22, 1948, docked in Tilbury, Essex, bringing nearly 500 Jamaicans to the UK.

 

Can you think of words to describe how you may of felt if you were a passenger onboard the Empire Windrush? Can you think of a sentence that includes a simile to describe how you felt?

Prepositions and Conjunctions

This week in class we have be learning about conjunctions and prepositions and how we can use them in sentences to give the reader more information.

Prepositions are words that tell us the location of something.

Example: 3O sat nicely on the carpet.

3O lined up quietly outside the classroom.

Conjunctions are words that are used to join two simple or more sentences together.

Example: Ms Oscislawski is happy. 3O are working hard.

Ms Oscislawski is happy because 3O are working hard.

Take a look at this sneak peak picture from The Return and comment below if you can think of any descriptive sentences that describe what is going on in the picture and include conjunctions and prepositions.

Example: The young boy tightly gripped the purple crayon in his hand because he was scared.
