We have written some sentences which start with fronted adverbials, but we have forgotten the commas! Today, we would like you to add commas to the sentences in the correct place 090221.year4.GPS2task. You can either print out the sentences and use a pink (or other coloured) pen to punctuate the fronted adverbials with commas, or you can rewrite the sentences on paper, including the commas. Make sure you look carefully when deciding where to put the comma!
Our handwriting session today will be focusing on some more words from the Year 3/4 word list. Read through the words on page 2 (you will need to scroll down to page 2, we have already done page 1) of 090221.year4.handwriting1 PAGE 2 ONLY and check that you understand their meaning. If there are any that you are unsure of, please look for their definitions in a dictionary or by using an online dictionary. Practise writing each word, by first tracing and then copying.
