These are the vocabulary and SPaG activities this week:
Vocabulary (related to the poems for the week)
L.O. To expand knowledge of ‘colloquial phrases’
Explain the meaning of these phrases – it might help to give a football related example of what they mean in the poem called ‘No one passes me’.
In my belly burns a fire
L.O. To change nouns to adjectives using the suffixes –ly, -ous, -ish, -y
Remember a noun = name of something, adjective = description words.
Examples of changing noun to adjective:
Friend -> friendly (He is my friend. He is a friendly boy. – be careful though, I nearly gave an example where friendly is a verb ‘He was friendly to me.’
Child -> childish
Poison -> poisonous
Rain -> rainy
2. Now complete each sentence by changing the suggested noun.
Baby – He whined and said the toys were too _______.
Fame – When she grows up, she would like to be a ______ person.
Dead – She had practiced until she could throw the darts with _____ accuracy.
Fun – The comedian was really _______.
3. Finally some sentences of your own - like I said above, make sure the new word is an adjective in the sentence you give; it is easiest to place it after was/were or as a 2A (______, _____ noun)
Anger (tiny spelling adjustment needed)
Challenge: Hope (the trick question because it uses a different suffix to the ones practiced above)
