Good Morning year 5.
Today I would like you to revise some of the SPaG you have learnt this year. To do this I have put a SPaG tests on the blog for you. However, I don’t expect you to do this all on your own. I expect you to use a website to help you study the material.
One of the things you need to learn for SATs, high school, GCSEs and beyond is how to study.
So what is studying? Well it’s a bit different to homework. Homework is a specific task that we set. Studying is reviewing material that has already been taught. Studying can also be learning new material by making notes on it and then practising it by applying it to a problem.
So how do you do it? With today’s task try this: read the question, and if you don’t know the answer to it, or you are unsure, you can use the website I have provided for you and look up what the rules are. EG:
“NO!!!! I forgot what a modal verb is!!!!
I know, I’ll follow the instructions and go to the website, scroll through it and see if I can find the words MODAL VERB because that seems to be the subject of the question.”
“Fount it…. Phew, now I’ll click on it and see if I can find the answer!“
“Great, it has the answer. I’m going to watch the video too so I can understand what a modal verb is, then next time I will know the answer without looking it up! ”
Isn’t that easy? I know all of you can have a go at this!
Website for help: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhrrd2p This has lots of links. Use it to help you revise.
Task 1: SPaG test: I have written instructions underneath the questions explaining how to answer each question in your book or on paper too. (look at the yellow boxes)

Q2. Write the sentence, underline the word and write at the end of your sentence the correct option.
Q3. Write the sentence with the correct preposition in the place of the box.

Q5. Make these 2 sentences into 1 sentence by adding a relative pronoun and creating a relative clause with commas. Write it in your book/paper.
Q6. Write the sentence with a relative pronoun in place of the box.
