Find the words that tell us more about (describe) the nouns. Circle them in RED.

Find the words that tell us more about (describe) the verbs. Circle them in GREEN.

These describing words have special names.

A word that describes the noun is called an ADJECTIVE.

A word that describes the verb is called an ADVERB.

ADJECTIVES

  1. Let’s take a look at adjectives in greater detail.

Gemma’s wagging tail has jumbled up these words. Sort the words into categories and give each category a name. Place the words into the given ‘hats’.

slow round rectangular salty sweet
woolly bitter rapid square lonely
happy rough overcast sunny fast
oblong sour sad jerky smooth
triangular cold knobbly tasteless content

Adjectives tell us more about the person, place, etc.

Assessment

LO 4

WRITING

The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

We know this when the learner:

4.1 writes different kinds of texts for different purposes and audiences:

4.1.1 writes for personal, exploratory, playful, imaginative and creative purposes (e.g. diary, humorous anecdotes, story, poem);

4.1.3 writes and designs visual texts expressing information clearly and creatively (e.g. advertisements, newsletters, map with pictures and labels);

4.2 develops and organises ideas through a writing process:

4.2.1 explores and analyses a topic and brainstorms ideas using mind maps, flow charts, and lists;

4.2.2 develops the topic by consulting relevant sources, selecting relevant information and organising ideas;

4.2.3 produces a first draft with central idea and well-developed supporting paragraphs;

4.2.4 uses simple, compound and complex sentences with awareness of the specific purpose and audience;

4.2.5 revises work focusing on content, appropriate language, organisation and style, and uses feedback from classmates and / or teacher;
