English/ Theme

 

Apostrophes have two important jobs to play in English. They are used for contractions, where they show that some letters have been left out.

e.g can not = can’t

They are also used to show possession - that is, when something belongs to someone or something else.

e.g Ron found Harry’s scarf.

 

Apostrophes for possession

Use the owner and match with the most likely possession to make a phrase which includes an apostrophe. Be careful with singular and plural forms! Write each phrase into a sentence, e.g. The waiter ate the customer’s breakfast.

Owner

Possession

The teacher

Year 5 Theme day

 

Next Friday, 22nd November is our Magical Muggles theme day and children have the option to come in costume. You may want to spend time this weekend preparing your costume or props.

 

English/Theme 

Children have been identifying clauses used in sentences and have used conjunctions to create complex sentences.

 

A complex sentence = Main clause + subordinate clause/ relative clause

A Main clause will make sense on its own and needs to include a subject and a verb.

A subordinate clause will not make sense on its own and starts with a subordinate conjunction.

A relative clause adds information to the main clause and doesn’t make sense on its own.  

 

TASK: Create 8 of your own complex sentences based on the image below, punctuate your sentences carefully.

 

e.g Snape paced the classroom before he announced to the class that they were learning the subtle science and exact art of potion making.

e.g Snape, who didn’t look very impressed, paced the classroom.

 

 

USE THESE SUBORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS AND

RELATIVE PRONOUNS

After, although, because, before, as, even, if, since,

 though, that, unless, until, when, whenever, where,

 wherever, whether, which, while, who, why.
