It is really, really important that you keep up with your reading both at home and in school. Reading opens so many different worlds and helps you learn new vocabulary, imagine different worlds and characters and can also teach us new things. Find a genre or type of book that you enjoy reading and please keep reading.
Have you got a library card? If so you can download RB Digital onto a device e.g. a tablet or smart phone and register with Somerset County Council for free access to hundreds of online books, audio books, comics and magazines. Maybe you'll find something new that you like to read. I have also attached below a list of books for different reading interests - how many of them have you read?

Today we are looking at expanded noun phrases. Check out the BBC webpage and have a look at the video and explanation to remind yourself what an expanded noun phrase is. Then I would like you to complete the three activities at the bottom of that page. I have put the sentences on Google Classroom if you want to type it straight on to there otherwise you can write them into your books.
