Today, we are going to look at possessive pronouns and determiners


A possessive determiner is used to identify who you are talking about, but without naming the person.

Possessive determiners  come before the noun

e.g. it was my time, it was his dog



A possessive pronoun shows ownership.  A Possessive pronoun  replaces the noun.

e.g.  All those books are Ben's . All those books are his.

Today, we are going to look at a brand new myth called Pandora's Box

We are going to complete a virtual shared reading of the book.

Task 1

Watch the video 

Read along with me, or for a challenge, turn down the volume and read it yourself.

If you can, discuss the myth with someone at home.


The author has used the conjunction "but" in a few places. Can you think why he has used it?


The conjunction but is used to suggest a contrast. It was a sunny day, but the wind was cold. (Here the second clause suggests a contrast that is unexpected in the light of the first clause.) The stick was thin but it was strong. He was ill but he went to work.

Some other conjunctions that are similar to but are

however, yet, although, even though, despite, nevertheless, in spite of the fact, contrarily.


Task 2

You are going to write at least 4 (5 for year 5) sentences of your own to describe what happened in the myth, using  as many of the conjunctions as possible. You can write about the same thing with a different conjunction.

e.g. Pandora was told not to open the box, but she did so anyway.

The box was opened, despite Pandora being told not to do it. 


Don't forget to add in your comma before the conjunction.
