Today we have been playing Top TRaMPs! We use TRaMP to help us remember how adverbs can be used to describe a verb. They can describe the Time something takes place, a Reason something occurs, the Manner in which something happens or the Place something happens.
We made TRaMP dice, rolled them twice and then added two adverbs to some boring sentences to jazz them up!
Wednesday 19th September
Today, we were lucky to have some bright sun after the heavy rain and so we got out into the playground to find invertebrates. We used a classification key to identify the invertebrates and we were very careful not to disturb them!
