Grammar & spelling

Our focus this week is still the present perfect tense. 


Simple Past is also known as Past Simple and describes events which happened at a specific time, but are now completed.  Example:  I baked.

The Present Perfect can be used for the following situations: to describe something that happened in the past and is continuing today; an action that was completed recently; and for an action that did not happen at a specific time.  Example:  I have baked.

Your spelling focus is words which have the prefixes un- and dis-.  For example, unhappy and disappear.

I have given you a sorting activity to help you with your spellings.  The instructions are on the sheet.  You need to write the words in the correct column on the table.  If you have a dictionary, you can use this to check your work.
