Today will be our last day dividing 2 digits by 1 digit!

My main tip is:

Have a look at the PowerPoint and then have a go at the worksheet.

Spellings

Please have a go at dots and dashes of Unit 7 of your purple spelling book. Top tip: ‘ou’ is a dash, ‘s’ is a dot. You can check your answers below.

What does possessive mean?

Demanding attention/selfish.

Now when we use possessive like that it is an adjective. Today we are going to be talking about possession. But the noun possession.  Have a think about what that might mean over the next few minutes.

Here are some rules for singular possession:

·       The apostrophe goes before the ‘s’ of the person’s name who owns something in the sentence

·       An apostrophe is in the air

·       You don’t need an apostrophe before any word ending in ‘s’

This is how you will achieve success:

So what do you think possession means? Something belongs to someone.

The sentences we are looking at today are about singular possession. What do you think that means? Something belongs to 1 person.

For example: Miss Heffernan's pencil was broken.

Task: choose which level sheet you would like to work on. One star is the easiest, three stars is the toughest.

RE

 What do dominoes have to do with communities? The first domino represents the first apostle who spread the word to another person.   What do you think this means? Why? What words make you think that? Are people still called to be Jesus’ apostles? How are we like apostles too? Think about: Who contributes to the community in our parish? What is a lay person? What does it mean to serve our community? How would our community be different without these people? Task: Write about the people who help in St. Peters. Consider how they help and draw pictures after.
