English

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z7s22sg/year-2-and-p3-lessons/1

 

Today's focus is using conjunctions when writing sentences about the ocean.

There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.

 

Activity 1: Let's join our ideas

See if you can identify all the joining words in this short activity on today's online lesson.

 

Activity 2: Discover the ocean

Watch the short video to find out about the ocean, then try the activity.

 

There are lots of different things you can see in the ocean.

Rewrite the sentences below by moving the conjunction to the start of the sentence. The first one has been done for you.

  • The ocean is wet because it is full of water.
    Because it's full of water, the ocean is wet.

  • Whales are really big because they eat lots of Plankton.

  • You would be surrounded by water if you were in the middle of the ocean.
  • There are lots of fish that live in the ocean because it is so huge.

 

Activity 3: writing some sentences using 'because', 'if' and 'when'.

Think about what you watched in the video above. There were lots of things to see in the ocean.

  • Write six sentences about the ocean using because, if or when . Try and do two sentences per conjunction.
  • Remember to use capital letters at the start and correct punctuation.

Here is an example:
Seaweed grows close to the surface because it uses the sun.
