Grammar

Today we are going to try and correctly recognise past and present tense 

Have a look at the powerpoint explaining past and present tense 

Tense tells you when something is happening. Did it happen in the past? Is it happening now? Or is it going to happen? 

We have a problem. Someone made a mistake and when writing the story they kept going to present tense by-accident. Your challenge is to help them by re-writing the first page in all PAST TENSE. Use your most beautiful handwriting. When you come to a verb you know is wrong, change it to the past tense. Eg ‘John and his dog lives’  should  be ‘John and his dog lived’..

 

Research task 

The story of the Pedlar Of Swaffham is well known in Norfolk and there really was a man named John Chapman. Little signs of the story are hidden all over Swaffham. There is a picture of John on the town cross sign to Swaffham and in the church there is a pew belonging to John Chapman and there is also a wooden carving of a man (John Chapman) holding his pack and a dog. Research these on the internet to see if you can find the pictures of what these look like. 

 

Music

We are going to work through a music unit called 'I want to play in a band'.
