Riddles: What Am I?

This week, we are going to try and put everything we’ve learned about nouns, verbs and adjectives together. Look at these riddles:

Now see if you can make one up on your own! It can be about an animal, a thing, a person or even a place.

Write three clues on a piece of paper, and draw your answer below it. Don’t forget to send your riddle to your teacher by Thursday.

Extension: If you would like to challenge yourself, see if you can type out your riddle on the computer and email it to your teacher. You might need to ask mum or dad for help with setting it up!

Adjectives: Part Two

Adjectives are describing words. They describe people, places, animals or things.

Adjectives describe a noun so when you are writing a sentence, the adjective will often sit before the noun. Example: I can smell the fresh flowers. (‘Fresh’ is the adjective.)

Activity 1: Can you find and write down the adjectives in each of these sentences?

Activity 2: Can you fill in the blanks with the right adjective for each animal?

Verbs: Part Two

Verbs are action words. They tell us what is happening. Last week you thought about what animals do and what people do.

Activity 1:

Activity 2:

Do you remember what nouns are? They represent a person, place or thing/animal. See if you can do this verb and noun sorting activity.
