LI: To be able to determine fact from opinion.
Good morning Year 5!
Now you know the features of a non-chronological report, we would like you to identify and record at least 5 facts from the report provided yesterday - click on the link below for the report.
What is a fact? Here is the dictionary definition of a fact: a piece of knowledge or information that is true or something that has actually happened.
Example of a fact: You attend Marsh Green Primary School.
What is opinion? Here is the dictionary definition of an opinion: a belief or view.
Example of an opinion: Mr Chin is great at golf. ( Although he may believe it to be true it is just his opinion!).
SPAG - Use of the hyphen after prefixes
Hyphens can be used to join a prefix to a root word, if adding it helps the reader with pronunciation or meaning. If the prefix ends in a vowel (a, e, i, o,u) and the root word begins with a vowel, the hyphen tells the reader to say two separate syllables, for example: re-educate. The hyphen tells us to say the word as two separate parts of the word rather than reeducate.
Inset the hyphen in each word to help with pronunciation. One has been done for you.
Now write a sentence, using your joined handwriting, with each of the correct hyphenated words. You need to know the meaning of the words first, therefore use a dictionary if you are unsure. The word must make sense in the context. You need to remember your basic punctuation for each sentence. You should also consider the range of sentence types you know, simple, compound and complex sentences. Can you link a sentence with a conjunction and use a range of punctuation?
