Noun, verb or adjective?
A great afternoon! We sorted adverbs in to the different categories and there were some great discussions over what type of adverb things like ‘suddenly’, ‘clockwise’ and ‘fortunately’ are. You gave some great reasons for your answers and really had to think about what each word was actually describing.
This weekend your SPaG key skills is along the same lines. I would like you to look at the list of words and decide whether they are adjectives, verbs or nouns. Place them on the Venn diagram in the right circle. Are there any that fit in to more than one category? Are there any words that fit in to all three? Annotate your work either on the outside of the diagram or on the back to show how the word is used in that category. Can you add any words of your own?
If this isn’t enough for you, you can post an adverbial phrase to show position on the blog.
