LEARNING to make a difference

Week 2

Personal Pronouns

 

A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun or noun phrase, so that we don’t need to keep repeating the same nouns.

 

A personal pronoun is a word which can be used instead of a person, place or thing.

If the noun is plural, so is the pronoun which replaces it.

                   

Singular:

I

me

you

he/she

him

her

it

Plural:

we

us

you

they

them

 

 

 

Eg. The dog was hungry. The dog ate a bone.

The dog was hungry. It ate a bone.

 

 The children played in the park. The children came home early.

The children played in the park. They came home early.

 

Task 1: Choose a suitable personal pronoun to save repeating the proper noun.

 

  1. Sophie likes ice cream so I bought she/her one.
  2. I think they/them are coming to see the play.
  3. Tom threw the ball and it hit he/her.
  4. Can we/us have some more chocolate?

 

Task 2: Write out the sentence and change the red words into a pronoun.

 

  1. Michael was late for school and Michael was going to get into trouble!
  2. The kittens were very playful all morning and now the kittens were tired.
  3. Gemma and I were swimming yesterday and Gemma and I swam fifty lengths together.
  4. Sarah was going to Gran’s house for tea and Sarah was very excited.

 

Task 3: Write two sentences of your own that include personal pronouns.
