Click on the link below. Watch the video and then complete activities 1 and 2.


Activity 1: An activity on the webpage.


Activity 2: I have included the pictures for you below. Write a sentence with a hyphen for each of the 5 pictures. To help, you could use some of the compound adjectives that you found in the wordsearch yesterday. Then send these sentences to me on Dojo.

To begin today, I have a great piece of work to show you from yesterday. I really like how this has been set out neatly and they have extended their task by giving some examples of the toolkit. Keep your toolkits safe everyone, we will be using them soon!
