PaG (15 minutes)
In todays PaG session I would like you to explore possessive apostrophes.
An apostrophe can be used to show that one thing belongs to or is connected to something. This is called a possessive apostrophe.
Let’s take a look at some examples.
The cat’s tail was fluffy.
Cat is a singular noun so you need to add an apostrophe and “s” to show that the tail belongs to the cat.
Charles’ cat was naughty.
Charles is a singular noun that ends in an “s”, so you need to add an apostrophe to show that the cat belongs to Charles.
The brothers’ feet were muddy.
Brothers is a plural noun that ends in an “s” so you don’t add another “s” after your apostrophe. You can just add an apostrophe to show the feet belongs to the brothers.
The children’s toys were broken
Children is a plural noun but it doesn’t end with an “s” so you need to add an apostrophe and “s” to show that the toys belong to the children.
Watch the video with the link below and complete the quiz. Make sure to send your scores over.

Writing (45 minutes): To create a newspaper article about your character
Today you are going to continue with your creative cartoon writing. Using your character you created yesterday, you are going to create a wanted poster for it.

Try and include these features below.

- 3 paragraphs – opening, main paragraph (most detail about the animal using facts and opinions) and a conclusion.
Look at the example below, they show the features above. Be creative as your possibly can with the language you use and make sure you use a range of sentence types to make it an exciting newspaper article. I have added a template you may want to print out and use but if you can, try and create your own.
