Indefinite articles

There are two indefinite articles in English: ‘a’ and ‘an’. They are used before a singular noun that has a plural form.
‘a’
 is used before consonants – b c d f g h j k l m n p q r s t v w x y z. ‘an’ is used before vowel – a e i o u

E.g. an umbrella or an ant.

Sometimes we use ‘an’ before the letter H, if we do not pronounce the H.  

E.g. – What an honour to meet you! 

Write the following sentences in full in your book. Choose between the two indefinite articles ‘a’ or ‘a.’ Underline them. 

  1. I need ____ pencil to write on ____  birthday card I bought my mum. 
  2. I ate some fruit today, I had ____ orange, ____ apple and _____ banana. 
  3. I have ordered ____ taxi. It will be here in ____ hour. 
  4. We are learning about shapes in school. Today I drew ____ triangle, ____ oval and _____ square. 
  5. He always tells the truth. He’s ____ honest man. 
  6. I put on _____ hat because it was windy. I didn’t want to get _____ cold. 

English (1 hour)

Well Year 4…. Who guessed it was Mary Poppins? I thoroughly enjoyed reading your character descriptions on the mysterious character. You were all so creative with the clues! Somebody guessed that she had mouldy teeth because of the spoonful of sugar! Fantastic.

As it is story telling week, I would like you to listen to the story of Mary Poppins to recap. You may have watched the films. Can you remember what happens? Here is the link to the classic tale:

For your English Task today, I would like you to create a diary entry. Imagine you are one of the Banks children. A very posh nanny has just arrived at your house and is here to look after you. She has made a lot of rules. What happened when she arrived? How do you feel? What does she make you do?

Diary checklist

A diary entry is a form of recount in which the writer explains what has happened to them. Here’s a checklist of the key features to use when you write a diary entry:

  • Start with ‘Dear Diary’.
  • Describe the places where the events happened.
  • Write in the past tense.
  • Use pronouns like I, my and me to show that the events happened to you.
  • Talk about how you were feeling or what you were thinking when each event happened.
  • Use a range of sentence types such as complex, multi-clause and sentences of three.
  • Upper level adjectives
Read this example of a diary entry about a person going to a theme park.
It is a good example, so you can use it to help your with your writing. 
Then think about the following questions:
1. How does the diary entry start?
2. Is it written in the past tense?
3. What feelings or emotions does the writer experience?
4. How is the writing organised?
