WALT: Use contractions in our writing.


When we talk we often push two words together, instead of ‘cannot’ we say can’t, ‘do not’ we say don’t and ‘I Would become I’d.  I’d like to fly like a bird. I can’t soar up high, I don’t know how to. When spelling these words we use an apostrophe to show the missing letters in the contraction.

Write sentences for the contractions in the table. Try to use some of the verbs you thought of yesterday.

e.g. I’m an enormous eagle soaring over the mountains.



















The portrait that you were looking at yesterday can be found in the National Portrait Gallery in London. The portrait was painted by Albert Charles Challen. The sitter of this portrait is Mary Seacole. In this unit we will be looking at the life of the 19th century nursing pioneer – Mary Seacole.

Research Mary Seacole and create a timeline of her life.

What interesting facts can you find out about her life and achievements?
