Hi Six Red, hope you are all well and ready to continue with your learning. Remember what Mr Patel has mentioned previously, it is still a school week and everyone is expected to complete the tasks which Mr Patel kindly highlighted on a timetable for you all . In addition to this we would like the following children to complete this blog:
- Hamzah .N
However if anyone else wants to have a go at the tasks they are more then welcome to do so. If you complete the task in your homework books can you please take a photo of your work and send it to us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Is It a Noun or Is It a Verb?
Some words can be used as both as nouns and verbs, which can get very confusing! Try and remember this little trick to help you use these particular words in different ways within your sentences.
The word ‘point’ can be both a noun and verb.
To use ‘point’ as a noun, put a determiner like ‘a’, ‘an’ or ‘the’ before it,
e.g. Henry sharpened his pencil to a point. (noun)
To use ‘point’ as a verb, put the word ‘to’ before it,
e.g. The little girl started to point out of the coach window. (verb)
Read these sentences. Is the underlined word being used as a noun or a verb?
a) The group stood at the front of the class to present their debate speech.
Rubbing her eyes in disbelief, Nisha ran over to the present underneath the Christmas
b) Dad was extremely pleased with the progress Billy had made in Year 6.
Victoria was trying to progress into the 100m backstroke final.
c) Holly was starting to suspect that her little brother had stolen the last chocolate
After a long chase, the police officer finally caught up with the suspect.
- Now, it’s your turn. Use these words in two different sentences: one where the word is used as a noun and one where it is used as a verb.
- Write a sentence using the word ‘display’ as a verb.

1)John is finding a pair of numbers to fit the equation 2a + b = 15.Both letters represent whole numbers. John says “One of the numbers must be odd and one must be even.”Do you agree with John? Show your reasoning.
2) A and b stand for whole numbers. A + b = 1000 and a is 150 greater than b. Work out the values of a and b.
3) X and y are both positive whole numbers. When multiplied together they make an odd number under 20. What could x and y be? How many combinations can you find?
Good luck guys with the above work, looking forward to your responses.
