Grammar homework- due Thursday 14th

This week, the children have been learning about active and passive sentences. In order to be able to do this, the children need to be able to identify the subject, verb and object within a sentence. These websites will be helpful:

Subject, verb and object

Parts of a sentence

Making passive sentences

We would like the children to write an explanation of subject, verb and object in a sentence and show how these can help to understand passive sentences. They must write three examples of active sentences and make them passive e.g.

Will ate the delicious cake. = Active sentence

Will is the subject, ate is the verb and the delicious cake is the object

The delicious cake was eaten by Will. = passive sentence

The children may post their response on the blog or submit a written version.
