Year 4 Using Expanded Noun Phrases

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 4 GPS Using Expanded Noun Phrases activity checks pupils’ understanding of adjectives, determiners, modifying nouns and prepositional phrases for expanding noun phrases. Children will select sentences that have expanded noun phrases correctly identified, prepositional phrases that are part of an expanded noun phrase, identify if a statement about expanded noun phrases is correct, find words in a sentence that make up an expanded noun phrase and select the most appropriate expanded noun phrase to complete sentences.
