 Grammar and Punctuation - Listing 

Whenever we write a list or series in our writing, we need to use important punctuation. A comma is used to separate three or more items in a list.

The listing rule NEVER changes. All of the items in a list are separated by a comma, except the last item, which is separated by the word 'and' instead of a comma.

 


 

Watch the excellent video below to revise what we know about listing.

 

 

 

Task: Use the list items to write a sentence about Chapter 9 of Journey to the River Sea using all of the items. Make sure you use commas to separate each list item correctly. The first one has been done for you as an example.

 

1.

  • Mr Carter
  • Mrs Carter
  • Beatrice
  • Gwendolyn

The Carter family is made up of Mr Carter, Mrs Carter, Beatrice and Gwendolyn

 

 

2.

  • Dudley
  • Joan
  • Bernard

 

3.

  • Maia
  • Finn
  • Clovis

 

4.

  • Steak and kidney pies
  • Suet pudding
  • Dumplings

 

5. 

  • Clovis will pretend to be Finn and hide near the harbour
  • Maia will spill the secret of the hiding place
  • The crows will think Clovis is Finn Traverner
  • Clovis will be taken back to Westwood in Finn's place.

Hands on Activity - Make a Fruit Juice

The weather is getting warmer continue into summer. On very hot days, I like to make fresh fruit juice from oranges and other delicious fruits like strawberries, blueberries and pineapple. Many different cultures and families around the world eat different types of fruit and make different healthy juices.

Watch this funny video of children making a fruit juice

 

 

Task: Make a fruit juice.

It can be any type of juice you like. It might be something fancy or it might be something simple but the important thing is to make most of it yourself (you might want to ask your family members for some help). 

 

If you like, you can send me a video or photo of you making a fruit juice at hhobbs@sfdprimary.co.uk  I will post the photos in the Independent Champions section of our Year 4 weekly page.

 

It is important to learn how to do things for yourself. This is called being INDEPENDENT. Learning to be more independent and do things for yourself helps you:

  • learn new things
  • build self-esteem and confidence
  • make good decisions
  • develop responsibility
  • feel important and like you belong
  • develop coordination
