This week we have been learning how to expand a noun phrase. Examples of noun phrases in their simplest form are phrases such as:

the girl

a bus

an elephant

the classroom


We have been working on expanding noun phrases by adding adjectives to describe the noun. If we use more than one adjective, we need to separate them using a comma. Here are some examples of expanded noun phrases:


the sweet, helpful girl 

a yellow bus

an old, grey elephant

the quiet, hard-working classroom


For their homework this week, we would like the children to practice expanding noun phrases by using adjectives. Below are the adjectives word mats we have used in class to try and include some more exciting vocabulary choices. The challenges are set out below.
