Activity 1: Marking sentences
Take a look at the sentences below and check whether they use capital letters and full stops correctly. Mark them by either saying the answer out loud or writing them down and marking them with a tick or a cross. The first one has been done for you.
- i think there should be capital letter at the start. ✘
- The dog loved running in the field.
- you were meant to go over there
- There are hundreds of rabbits in the field.
- The cat ran really quickly
- it rained all day long.
- I could not believe my eyes.
- The wizard was very powerful
- I think the weather is going to be nice tomorrow.
Rewrite the sentences correctly

2. Go to Practise and Activity 2.
3. Watch the video and complete the activity.
Imagine you are teaching someone how to be a Monster Sitter. Write a list of equipment a Monster Sitter will need and then write some instructions outlining what they must do.
You'll need to:
- Make sure your instructions are clear by numbering them.
- Use capital letters at the start of each sentence and a full stop at the end.
- Use multiple conjunctions in your instructions. These can be and, because, if and when.
- For example: You will need to cook the monster its food because it will be hungry. If you don't cook its food, it will get grumpy.

Sally and Percy helped to sort objects into boxes with labels.
On a piece of paper, write the following graphemes. Remember, a grapheme is a letter, or group of letters that represent a sound.
Using the above graphemes as labels, see how many items you can find around your home that contain each grapheme. Try and find one item per grapheme.
