English

Today's focus is to be able to identify the days of the week as proper nouns and use them in sentences containing joining words.

 

Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short videos.

 

Activity 1: Writing some sentences

As you have learnt, we use capital letters in a variety of ways.

They are used:

  • at the beginning of a sentence
  • for proper nouns (names, places, countries, days of the week, nationalities, languages)
  • when using I to talk about yourself

Try writing five sentences that uses capital letters for all three reasons above. Make sure you include a joining word in your sentence too. Once you've finished, circle the capital letters and explain why they are capital letters.

Here is an example: My sister, Becky, watched a film with me but I did not like it.

 

Activity 2: Let's write about other people

Watch the short video about Joe Wicks and then try writing some sentences about it.

Joe Wicks talked about five different exercises in his video. Can you remember what they were?

Write a sentences about each of them.

  • Remember to use capital letters correctly.
  • Include joining words in each of your sentences.

Here is an example: Joe Wicks exercised his upper body when punching the air for thirty seconds.

 

Activity 3: Days of the week in sentences

 

Imagine you are recording your exercises or activities in a diary.

  • Record what activities you did on each day of the week.
  • Make sure you use joining words to add more information to your sentences.
  • See if you can use some of your joining words in different parts of your sentences.

Here are two examples:
On Monday, I went on a bike ride with my parents and then I did some English work.
I did some English work and went for a bike ride with my parents on Monday.
