SPaG: Use the link below to watch the two videos about standard English and non-standard English. Afterwards, log on to and select 'Standard English'. Complete this learning activity. 

Reading Comprehension - All about Elephants: Re-read the text on pages 13 and 14 then...

1. Use the language of inference prompts below to discuss and explore the text further. If this could be done alongside an adult or even another pupil in class, it would be highly beneficial.

2. Explore the vocabulary and phrases that you highlighted (or wrote down) yesterday. Read around the word to deduce the meaning. Used its word class to help: is the word a noun, adjective, verb, adverb, pronoun etc.?

Vocabulary, from the text, that I think would be useful to explore -

  • distinctive
  • subspecies
  • roam
  • matriarch
  • counterparts
  • multitude
  • commodity
