Thursday 25th February
There is a spelling test tomorrow and well done to all of you that have been working hard on practising those spellings. But Thursday spelling shed will be a recap, so these spellings will only be online for 24 hours. Can you earn an extra house point by getting to Royal bee in this short period of time?
Today we will be looking at determiners.
Slide 1 – The Rules –
Determiners are words that come before a noun or noun phrase.
There are two types of determiners - specific and general.
They introduce the noun and give the reader important information about it.
Slide 2 – Specific Determiners – we use these when the reader knows exactly which noun you are referring to.
Bring me the book.
Slide 3 – Demonstrative Determiners – these are also specific.
Bring me that book.
Slide 4 – Possessive Determiners – these relate to the ownership of the noun.
Bring me your book.
Slide 5 – Interrogative Determiners – are used before a noun to ask a question.
Which book do you need at the moment?
Slide 6 – General Determiners – these don’t refer to a specific article
Bring me a book.
Slide 7 and 8 – General Determiners – Quantifiers – these tell the quantity (amount) of something
Bring me some books.
Slide 9 and 10 – Determiners – The tricky bits.
This book is mine.
This is my book.
Slide 11 – Question 1. Copy the sentences down and underline the determiners in each sentence. Be aware that there may be more than one in each sentence.
Slide 12 – Question 2. Copy the sentences down and underline the quantifiers in each sentence. Be aware that there may be more than one in each sentence.
Slide 13 – Question 3. Copy the sentences down and add an ‘a’ or an ‘an’ to each sentence. Say them out loud and you should get them correct.
