Excellent Examples of work from todays lesson (click to enlarge)

-Extra: write a paragraph about your Goblin


Good Morning Year 4, 

Watch the video to get started with todays lesson where we continue to look in our Goblinology book. Get your imagination caps on for todays learning!!

Just to clarify from this video

Noun = Place, person or object

Adjective = Describing word

Verb = Doing word E.g. shouts, walks, waddles

Adverb= A word that modifies a verb E.g. quietly, slowly, quickly


An adverb gives more information about a verb. Watching the video back I didn't make this too clear I apologise! 

So for example: The Water Goblin slowly (adverb) waddles (verb). 

WOW! I've been blown away by your phenomenal Goblins!! I really enjoyed looking at your work- What fantastic imaginations you all have and what great descriptive words you've used to describe them. Take a look to see what your classmates came up with! (Click to enlarge)


L/O: To identify and make different contractions.

I can remember to:

-explain that a contraction is a shortened form of two words.

-understand an apostrophe is used to show you omitted or left out a letter.

-identify mistakes and where an apostrophe should go in a contracted word.


Happy Wednesday Year 4,

Today we are going to be looking at contractions. There are 4 tasks for you to complete today. Task number 4 you will need to use what you've learnt from the lesson in your writing. Watch the video to get started!

L/O: To use fronted adverbials in a sentence.
