Hope you are all well and have had a good rest.
Here is your work for today.
Please take the first five words off the year 5/6 spelling list in the paper pack and learn what they mean and how to spell them and write them in your exercise book. ( excellent, existence, explanation , familiar and foreign )
Then do the 2do on word splits on purple mash . Remember that a noun is used to identify people, places or things. Adjectives describe the noun. Verbs are words that describe the action, state or occurrence and adverbs qualify an adjective , verb or another adverb.
