Activity 1

To complete sentences by using verbs [lo 6.2.5]


A verb is a d or action word and it tells us what someone or

something is doing, e.g. singing eating.

It is the most important word in a sentence. Without it, the sentence doesn’t make sense.

Make up interesting verbs, and use your dictionary to check your spelling!

  2. The teacher when she saw the strange creature.
  3. He up their lunches with one enormous gulp.
  4. Fattypuffs and enjoy telling jokes.
  5. They have to in buses, as there are no seats.

Brainstorm and read other verbs you can think of;

  • Colour in the appropriate answer.

Activity 2

To learn about prefixes [lo 6.1.1]


  • Read ‘Raindrops’ and answer the questions that follow:


When clouds cover the skies

I know it’s going to rain

I curl up in my bed

and listen to the drops

on my window pane

The raindrops splash on roses

and their petals look like silk

but the white roses with raindrops

look like the colour of milk

It is a beautiful scene

for the roses’ leaves

are always green

While sitting on my chair

I watch the raindrops

and oh how I wish I was there

They look magical as they sprinkle down

the raindrops wet the other flowers

and it looks like they are having little showers

The roses start whispering

the flowers are glistering

the rain stops

and the dew is sitting on the flower tops.

Simon whistled for his dog. When Webster heard his master, he scampered quickly to the tree. Simon told him to lie down and he gently removed hair from Webster’s tail.

Webster fondly licked his master’s face, totally unaware of what was happening. Simon turned to give his dog’s hair to the little goblin. To his amazement, there was no goblin sitting on the rose bush. Webster wagged his tail joyfully and Simon laughed when he realised he had only been dreaming.
