Activity 1

To complete sentences by using verbs [lo 6.2.5]

LANGUAGE FUN - VERBS

A verb is a d or action word and it tells us what someone or

something is doing, e.g. singing eating.

It is the most important word in a sentence. Without it, the sentence doesn’t make sense.

  • Write a different verb in each of the sentences.

Make up interesting verbs, and use your dictionary to check your spelling!

  1. The Marrog could the entire class.
  2. The teacher when she saw the strange creature.
  3. He up their lunches with one enormous gulp.
  4. Fattypuffs and enjoy telling jokes.
  5. They have to in buses, as there are no seats.

Brainstorm and read other verbs you can think of;

  • Colour in the appropriate answer.

I am able / unable to identify verbs in sentences.

Activity 2

To learn about prefixes [lo 6.1.1]

SUPER . . . PARTS OF SPEECH!

  • Read ‘Raindrops’ and answer the questions that follow:

Raindrops

When clouds cover the skies

I know it’s going to rain

I curl up in my bed

and listen to the drops

on my window pane

The raindrops splash on roses

and their petals look like silk

but the white roses with raindrops

look like the colour of milk

It is a beautiful scene

for the roses’ leaves

are always green

While sitting on my chair

I watch the raindrops

and oh how I wish I was there

They look magical as they sprinkle down

the raindrops wet the other flowers

and it looks like they are having little showers

The roses start whispering

the flowers are glistering

the rain stops

and the dew is sitting on the flower tops.

PREFIXES

‘Super-‘ is a prefix and it means ‘above’, beyond or outstanding.

  • Record as many words beginning with ‘super-‘ as you can. Briefly, write their meanings next to the arrowheads below.

The prefix “ Pro” means “for” “Re” means “back:, again

  • Write three words each beginning with the prefixes and their meaning.
  • Read the passage carefully. Underline the VERBS in blue and ADVERBS in orange .

Make a list of them.

Simon whistled for his dog. When Webster heard his master, he scampered quickly to the tree. Simon told him to lie down and he gently removed hair from Webster’s tail.

Webster fondly licked his master’s face, totally unaware of what was happening. Simon turned to give his dog’s hair to the little goblin. To his amazement, there was no goblin sitting on the rose bush. Webster wagged his tail joyfully and Simon laughed when he realised he had only been dreaming.

Activity 3

To speak with fluency and the proper body language [lo 2.4.1]

LET YOUR IMAGINATION SOAR! CAPTURE THE CLASS . . .

You reached into your jacket pocket, only to discover a very strange and wonderful object! You had bought it many months ago and had forgotten all about it!

  • What is it? Describe it!
  • Where did you get it?
  • What is its purpose?
  • Do you plan to do something special with it?
  • Use your imagination and amaze your teacher and friends. You may use ‘props’ and dress up to make your presentation even more captivating!

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
