Literacy key skills – 24th April, 2015

Noun, verb or adjective?

What a great afternoon!  We worked outside and sorted adverbs in to the different categories.  There were some great discussions over what type of adverb things like ‘suddenly’, ‘clockwise’ and ‘fortunately’ are.  I loved listening to your reasoning- you worked very well and I am very proud of each and every one of you. 🙂

This weekend’s key skills is along the same lines.  I would like you to look at the list of words and decide whether they are adjectives, verbs or nouns. Place them on the Venn diagram in the right circle.  Are there any that fit in to more than one category?  Are there any words that fit in to all three?  Annotate your work either on the outside of the diagram or on the back to show how the word is used in that category.  Can you add any words of your own?

If this isn’t enough for you, you can post an adverbial phrase to show position on the blog.

Happy SPaG-ing!

Mrs R 🙂
