This morning, Miss Frith had an email from Sarah who works with someone in our class. She asked if we could have a go at creating sentences in a different way. We were all excited to do this because it looked like a fun activity. We used colours and pictures to represent our words and made a sentence using different colours.
Miss Frith taught us about prepositional phrases before we went to tables to have a good go.
Prepositional phrases were green, adjectives were light blue, nouns were dark blue, words like the, a and an were pink and verbs were orange.
Can you spot the different words in these sentences with adverbial phrases?
Some of us moved onto an extra challenge! Some of us had to use prepositional phrases at the end of sentences, some of us had to use them at the beginning and some of us had to use adverbs.
If a prepositional phrase goes at the beginning of a sentence, you need to use a comma because it doesn’t stand alone as a sentence by itself. It is extra information.
‘I loved it because one of the nouns we had to use was a football and I love football.’
‘I liked it because we got to use different colours to make sentences and I got to do an extra challenge’.
‘I liked it because it was helping me to understand how to put a sentence together.’
Here are some of the sentences we wrote once we had used the different coloured words to create our sentences:
