Today, we are going to focus on a part of our English called SPAG. Can you remember what SPAG stands for? So today, we are going to be looking at improving our use of grammar with a little bit of punctuation too. We are going to learn how to use expanded noun phrases in our writing. What is a noun? Watch the video on expanded noun phrases here. Next, open the video of Mrs Hodgson (video centre) where I will explain what we are going to do today. You will need a pencil and paper, and possibly a print out of the picture attached below but this is not essential as Mrs Hodgson will share her screen where the picture will be an you can pause the video. Think about, what you can see, who, where, adjectives. We are going to create our expanded noun phrases in a similar way to the video showed. For example:
The girl
The happy girl
The happy, beautiful girl
The happy, beautiful girl walking her dog.

Use the picture to create 3 to 5 sentences using expanded noun phrases in them just like the example above and how Mrs Hodgson showed you on the video.
