Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am afraid that home school is cancelled for today.
Just kidding! School never ends! Mwahaha!
Hello, Beech class! I hope you’re well! Please continue to send in photos so that I can see how you’re all getting on with your learning and so that I can share them on Friday.
Also, if you’re viewing this on Tuesday, then this is a reminder that there is a Zoom meeting today!
Here are the details:
Today’s maths has been set on My Maths and is called ‘Mixed calculations over 100’.
Please go through the lesson activities and complete the questions – don’t forget to press ‘mark it!’.
Today’s English has been set on Purple Mash and is called ‘Lily’s dog.‘ In this activity, you need to use apostrophes (‘).
Apostrophes are mainly used for two reasons.
One is to show that a word has been contracted (made shorter by missing out some letters)
e.g. can not = can‘t
should have = should‘ve
I will = I‘ll
Apostrophes are also used to show possession. Sometimes it helps to think of this as “belonging to“; being “from” something or somewhere; or being “of” something”
David‘s shoe (The shoe that belonged to David)
Anne‘s football (The football that belonged to Anne)
The fox‘s home (The home that belonged to the fox)
A summer’s day (a day of summer)
Apostrophes are NEVER used to show that there is more than one of something (plural)
e.g. She dropped all the toy’s – Incorrect
She dropped all of the toys – correct
Sometimes, however, you might have plural followed by an apostrophe to show that something belongs to more than one person/thing.
e.g. April Fools’ Day (The day doesn’t belong to one fool – it belongs to many fools!)
Here are today‘s pages (the answers from today), followed by yesterday‘s answers (the answers from yesterday)!
Also, does anybody else find the dog’s stern expression really funny or is it just me?
