Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the summer term! This first half term will be a shorter one, but will be just as busy as all the rest. We are all very excited about our new topic, 'Narnia' and our upcoming visit to Bewilderwood on the 24th of May (more details to follow at a later date).
I'd also like to mention that we are back to our normal schedule for P.E., which will resume on Monday afternoons. It is getting warmer outside, so shorts and T-shirts are fine, however, it may be a good idea for children to have some warmer clothes (jumpers and tracksuit bottoms) just in case.
As requested by some parents last term, please see below some terminology that we have been/will be continuously using throughout our literacy sessions. Mrs. Hazelwood and I will also be sticking some helpful fronted adverbial and conjunction lists into the homework books.
YEAR 4 TERMINOLOGY
verb: an action word
Giovanni ran across the field.
noun: a person, place or thing
The cat slept peacefully.
adjective: describes a noun
The spotty, red tablecloth covered all of the table.
adverb: describes how, when or where an action took place
Sienna jumped joyfully.
Sienna left later.
fronted adverbial: an adverb that occurs at the beginning or 'front' of a sentence.
conjunction: a word used to connect words, clauses or sentences; there are subordinating and coordinating conjunctions (see helpful sheets in homework books)
clause: a sentence/group of words that makes sense on its own, containing at least a noun (main subject of the sentence) and a verb
The horse galloped across the field.
phrase: a group of words used to add meaning to a clause, which do not make sense on their own
after some time had passed in the garden because she was hungry
simple sentence: a sentence which has just one independent clause.
Gregory enjoys playing tennis.
compound sentence: a sentence that has two independent clauses
I found the clothes in the attic and I saw a large mouse.
complex sentence: a sentence which has a main clause and a subordinate clause
After the Cubs defeated the Raptors, they held a huge party.
I hope this is helpful!
