 Grammar - Adverbs

Just like an adjective describes a noun, an adverb describes a verb It describes how the action happened. For example, you might be describing a scene in a where a student walks up to the front of the classroom:

'Sheyam walked up to the front of the classroom.' 

We know the verb is walked but adding an adverb into the sentence will show us how the student walked. How did Sheyam walk? Did he walk confidently, angrily, shyly, hastily, loudly or quietly?

Notice how lots of adverbs end in ly!

 

Watch the video below to clarify what we just learnt about adverbs.

 

 

Task: For today's task, I would like you to write a sentence about each character in Chapter 6 of Journey to the River Sea. I will give you the name of the character and a verb to use in the sentence. It is your job to write a sentence about the character using that verb and include an appropriate adverb. Please underline your adverb in your sentence.

 

The first one has been done for you as an example.

 

 Some adverbs you might like to use in your sentences. You don't need to use these ones if you don't want to.

Character Verb Sentence
Maia ran Maia ran desperately across the Manaus square to get to the theatre in time to see Clovis in Little Lord Fauntleroy.
Maia hid

Hands on Activity - Bake some Biscuits

Many different cultures and families around the world like to bake biscuits and cookies. Biscuits are very popular in traditional British culture. So popular in fact that Sesame Street's Cookie Monster has a British cousin called the Biscuit Monster!

 

Watch this funny video of children trying different biscuits with the cookie monster.

 

 

Task: Bake some Biscuits.

It can be any type of biscuits you like. It might be something fancy or it might be something simple but the important thing is to make and bake most of it yourself (you might want to ask your family members for some help). My favourite type of biscuits are healthy ones with wholemeal flour and not too much sugar. What are your favourite kind of biscuits?

 

If you like, you can send me a video or photo of you baking biscuits at hhobbs@sfdprimary.co.uk  I will post the photos in the Independent Champions section of our Year 4 weekly page.

 

It is important to learn how to do things for yourself. This is called being INDEPENDENT. Learning to be more independent and do things for yourself helps you:

  • learn new things
  • build self-esteem and confidence
  • make good decisions
  • develop responsibility
  • feel important and like you belong
  • develop coordination
