Its It’s – which to use?

Its It’s – which to use?

Lots of people get mixed up between its and it’s even though it is quite straightforward.

It’s with an apostrophe is short for “it is” or “it has”. It is known as a contraction.

Its without an apostrophe means something belonging to it. It is known as a possessive pronoun.

 

It is a nice day, can be written as: It’s a nice day.

The dog is playing with its ball does not have an apostrophe because the ball belongs to the dog. It stands for the dog.

 

 

Let me give you some examples.

Here are some examples of it’s with an apostrophe.

It’s always sunny.

It’s my life.

It’s all my fault.

It’s just rock and roll

It’s easy being green.

It’s none of your business.

It’s a dog’s life.

It’s my friend’s birthday today.

If it’s to be it’s up to me.

It’s not the money that counts, it’s the thought.

It’s your body, take care of it.

It’s ok to tell other people.

 

You will have noticed that it’s often comes at the beginning of a sentence but that is not always the case.

When there are clouds in the sky, it’s more likely to rain.

I wonder why it’s not easier to understand these questions.

 

Here are some examples of its without an apostrophe.

The football team is very successful because its players all train hard.

The city park is beautiful and its lawns are cut regularly.

Paris is well known for its many beautiful buildings.

The school has cleaned all its windows.

The moat around a castle used to help stop its enemies getting into it.

The aeroplane was starting its engine.

London is the capital of England and it is well known for its red buses.

The elephant was waving its trunk.

China is proud of its Great Wall.

Tutorful review

Tutorful review

 

If you’re looking for a tutor in England, then Tutorful maybe a good place to start. To make it easy I’ve created a Tutorful review for you so that you can see whether this is likely or not to meet your needs.

A useful link to Tutorful

Here is a link to Tutorful which gives you £5 off your first lesson.

Tutorful Tutors

All of its tutors are from England and have had to give at least two references, prove their ID and also show their DBS documents for safeguarding purposes.

Some of the tutors will just be available in the evening and some of them will be available all day which means that if you are to the east of England because of the time changes you might find this is a useful website to find a British English speaking tutor.

Some tutors only do home visits in their local area where is others also do online work. There will be other tutors who only do online work. The cost is the same whether or not the tutor is visiting you and your home or working online with you or your child.

Book me for any of these areas:

I am on Tutorful myself and so if you would like me to tutor you just look for Julia Kossowska.

Primary Maths

Primary English

SATs – years 2 and years 6

11+ and other entrance exams.

Maths for secondary school students who are struggling and would like more of a primary approach to the subject.

Coaching for primary school parents – You might like to consider this option instead of tutoring for your child. As a teacher, I often supported parents who wanted to help their children, and I could often cover a lot more material with the parents who were then able to spend time with their own children in smaller chunks of time.

I do both home visits if you live in the south Birmingham area and online tutoring if you don’t or prefer the online option.

Children love it as well as benefiting from it!

Many children love the experience of being tutored and the extra confidence it gives them.

You might think that for a child who is struggling at school, having a tutor and extra lessons would be a right pain. However, it doesn’t seem to work like that. If you have a good tutor your child will get to know them, become more confident about asking questions and find themselves being able to do things in class with their friends rather than being left behind. They will start to find a variety of subject more interesting.

Not every child takes to every tutor, so an agency like Tutorful is ideal. You can try a tutor and if the relationship works, which most of them do, stay with them. However, if for some reason this doesn’t seem to be being a good experience for your child, it is very easy to try a different person.

In the video below you hear from a couple of pupils as to why they and their parents decided to try having support from tutors.

Tutorful Video –

Tutorful used to be called Tutora – so in this video where we learn why Tutorful was set up you will hear the name Tutora rather than Tutorful, but be assured it is the same organisation.

 

 

How to find your tutor

Just click on this picture when you are ready.

You can then choose in person or online.

If you choose in person the tutor will come to your home or wherever you agree. Each tutor will have put in a maximum distance that they are prepared to travel so you should only see tutors who would be happy to come to where you live or somewhere nearby.

You will also choose the subject, the level that the tutoring is for and if you have chosen in person you also need to need your location.

You will then get a list of people who are available to be a tutor for your child/young person.

Then you will see a shortened profile of each tutor – for example:

See our great tutors.
See our great tutors.

Here you can see how many repeat students each tutor has taught, how far away they are, how many hours they have taught and an indication of how quickly they are likely to get back to you.

If you like the look of someone you can then click “View profile” and find out more about them. If you then want to get in touch with them there is a message me button on the full profile page, and then you can exchange information before going ahead and signing up with them.

 

Tutoring Works!!

Tutoring does make a difference.

Planet Earth Facts

Planet Earth Facts

This article has been inspired by a book called The Big Countdown: Seven Quintillion, Five hundred Quadrillion Grains of Sand on Planet Earth. Its author is Paul Rockett. It is full of pictures, infographics and amazing planet Earth facts. It was published in 2014 so I imagine that most of the facts are still correct.

The book

Planet Surface

70.8% of the earth’s surface is water.

29.2% of the earth’s surface is land.

The Earth’s Atmosphere

This book takes great delight in using enormous numbers. It tells us about the Earth’s atmosphere is that it is made up of atoms as is everything around us.  Apparently, some scientists think that there are about 200 tredecillion atoms in the atmosphere. One tredecillion has 42 zeros in it!

We learn about the 5 layers of the Earth’s atmosphere.  They are the troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere, thermosphere and exosphere. The outer layer of the exosphere is 8000 kilometres away, well not exactly because there isn’t a specific edge. It just drifts off into outer space.

One of the facts I found interesting, is that an estimated 40 tonnes of meteors crash into the middle layer every single day.  Luckily for us, they burnt out before getting any closer to the Earth.

7 Quintillion, 500 Quadrillion Grains Of Sand On The Planet Earth

7 Quintillion, 500 Quadrillion Grains Of Sand On The Planet Earth is part of the title of the book and is also a chapter title.

This is obviously an estimate.  There is no way anyone could count all the grains of sand on the Earth.  Sand comes in different sizes anything from 0.06 of a millimetre to 2 mm. To come up with the number 7 quintillion 500 quadrillion,  scientist calculated how many grains of sand would fit into a teaspoon and then they multiplied the number of teaspoons they thought they were in all the beaches in the world and all the deserts in the world. How accurate do you think they might have been?

There are some amazingly long beaches in the world,  according to this book the longest one in the world is Praia do Cassino beach in Brazil which is just over 250 km long. The next couple of longest beaches are Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh which is just over 240 km long and Padre Island Texas where the beach is about 230 km long. After that come to beaches which are both called Ninety Mile Beach one of them is in New Zealand and one of them is in Australia.  The one that is in Australia is actually slightly longer and the one that is in New Zealand is actually about 88 miles long not 90 as its name suggests.

The largest sun sand castle in the world was built in America and was nearly as tall as 3 double decker buses.

Deserts make up about 9.5% of the world surface, however, only about 20% of the deserts in the world are covered by sand. The others are covered with rocks and pebbles and different types of soils.

People

We now have over 7 billion people living on the Earth. This is twice as many as they were 50 years ago. In the next 50 years it is estimated that we will have over 9 billion people living on the Earth. Nearly 90 babies are born every 20 seconds.

The Earth’s population is spread over 7 continents – Asia, Africa, North  America, South America, Europe, Australasia and Antarctica.

Asia has the largest land mass and also the largest population with over 4 billion people living there, most of those in China.

Australasia has the fewest people living there.  Nobody lives there permanently but about 4000 scientists come To live and work there each year.

Water

As we’ve said most of the Earth is covered with water,  70.8% of its surface in fact. 68.3% of the earth’s surface is covered with saltwater and 2.5% of the earth’s surface is covered with freshwater. However, about 41% of the known species of fish are only found in freshwater.

The largest fish that is found in salt water is the whale shark which can grow up to 12 metres in length and its mouth is 1 and 1/2 metres wide!

The largest freshwater fish is the Beluga sturgeon this can live in both freshwater and saltwater and it can measure up to 5 metres long.

Sea sponges are a type of animal life, scientists reckon that they have probably been around for over 760 trillion years.

Most of us will have heard of the longest rivers in the world the very longest is the river Nile in Africa which is about 6,650 km long after that is the Amazon in South America, the Yangtze in Asia and the Mississippi in North America.

The largest waterfalls in the world are the Angel Falls in Venezuela Which has a height of 979 m, and then Tugela in South Africa and then or Utigord in Norway.

Volcanoes

Children often enjoy learning about volcanoes at school.  There are three types of volcanoes – Composite volcanoes, Cinder Cone volcanoes, and Shield volcanoes.

Volcanoes can also be classified as active dormant or extinct.

Active means it’s erupted in the last 10000 years.  Dormant volcanoes, are those which have not erupted but they might erupt again, and Extinct volcanoes are those which are not expected to ever erupt again.

Fun Facts About Elephants

 

Fun Facts About Elephants

Elephants are the largest and heaviest land animals that exist on Earth at the moment. They’re probably also the most intelligent domesticated animal. They have the longest noses of any animal. They have the longest teeth, these are known as tusks. Their gestation period is the longest and it may be that they have the longest memories as well. This article will help you learn some other fun facts about elephants.

Elephants have lived all over the earth, everywhere except Australia and Antarctica.  They have lived in rainforests, deserts and glaciers.

A young elephant

Species of elephant

There were possibly 300 species of elephant. We now just have 2 left, the African elephant and the Asian elephant. There are two subspecies of the African elephant, the bush elephant and the round-eared elephant. Then there are three subspecies of the Asian elephant, the Sri Lankan, Indian and Sumatran elephants.

Family organisation

Male and female elephants (also known as bulls and cows) don’t live together. Usually, bulls will live together and the cows and their offspring will live together. The cows and calves (which are baby elephants) are usually in a herd which is led by an older elephant who will be a grandmother or maybe even a great-grandmother.

Mammoths and mastodons.

Many people will have heard of the woolly mammoth and know that it is one of the elephants’ extinct relatives. A woolly mammoth was found by a fisherman in Russia in 1799. It was frozen in a block of ice. Many other woolly mammoth tusks have been found in this area.

In North America, there were also some mammoths found but there were more mastodon remains found. Mastodons were similar to mammoths but they were shaped slightly differently. The mammoth had back which sloped downwards towards their tails, whereas mastodons have backs which are more level.

Ivory boomerang – Poland 23000 years ago

Stone Age tools weapons

Elephant feet

Elephants have large round feet and are designed to walk quietly around the forest when they want to. As they put their feet down on the ground the size of their feet expands slightly. Most elephants have five toes on each foot, but some African elephants only have four toes. However, their toes do not stick out like ours do but are covered in skin. Their “toenails” are attached to the front of the round foot rather than their toe bones and look a bit like hooves.

The Elephant’s Trunk

An elephant’s trunk is a bit like having a combined arm and a nose.

The trunk will suck up water and then put it into its mouth so that it doesn’t have to put its head right down to the water to drink. You will also see elephants squirt water all over their bodies and also each other as a game.

The end of the African elephants’ trunk seems to operate almost like a finger and thumb. It can pick things up and even take grit out of its eyes.

The Asian elephant seems to have one finger on its trunk so it picks things up by curling its trunk around them.

The elephant can move its trunk in any direction and it can also stretch its trunk to reach things.

Tusks

Tusks are the elephant’s front two teeth but they have grown much bigger than the other teeth. They can grow about 17 cm or 8 inches per year. They are used as tools and weapons and sometimes the elephants will sharpen one or both of them to make them more effective.

Unfortunately, many elephants have been killed for their tusks, also known as ivory, as poachers have been able to sell them for a lot of money.  Tusks don’t wear out and last a whole lifetime unless they get damaged.

An ivory boomerang was found in Poland. It was thought to be 23,000 years ago

Ivory was used in the Stone Age both to make tools and weapons.

The Other Teeth

Elephants also have to lower teeth which they use to grind up their food. These teeth do get worn out and they get replaced about 6 times in an elephant’s lifetime. Each replacement is bigger than the last. Final teeth will be about the size of house bricks.

Elephants are constantly eating

Ok, not constantly! But for about three-quarters of the day and night elephants are collecting and eating their food. Elephants eat from 100 to 200 kg of food in the wild. They eat plants, they are herbivores, but they can’t eat cellulose which makes up a lot of what plants are made of. This is why elephant poo doesn’t contain much undigested plant fibre or seeds.

Elephants like bananas, other fruits and sugar cane so they are happy when they find these but they also trample these crops and push over the trees. This is a major problem for the people who have cultivated these as they can have their livelihood destroyed.

Planet Facts For Kids

Planet Facts For Kids

When I was younger, it was said that there were 9 planets in our solar system.  The planets were Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto going around the sun. Later, I came across a mnemonic for it. My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. However, since that time scientists have decided that we have eight planets in our solar system and that Pluto is a dwarf planet, and actually they have found larger rocks in the area of Pluto than Pluto itself.  On this page of planet facts for kids, I have decided to include Pluto so that you know why it is in some lists.

Here is a video you might like to watch and then there is some information about each planet.

Mercury

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. It is also the smallest of the planets.  It is incredibly hot there as it is just 36 million miles from the sun.

It is named after the Roman god Mercury who is the messenger of the gods.

Two spacecraft have flown past Mercury gathering information.  One was called Mariner 10 and this flew past Mercury twice, once in 1974 and then again in 1975.  Then in 2004 MESSENGER was sent. This orbited Mercury 4000 times before running out of fuel and crashing into the planet in 2015.

 

Venus

Venus between Mercury and Earth and so will still be much hotter than Earth.

It is named after the Roman god of love.

It is the brightest object in the sky after the sun and the moon.

Whereas the Earth rotates once a day, Venus takes 243 days to rotate on its axis.  It actually goes quicker than this around the sun, taking 224.7 Earth days to make its journey.

Venus also rotates in the opposite direction than the Earth does, which means that the sun would seem to rise in the west and set in the east.

Venus is often referred to as either the morning star or the evening star, especially in poetry.

Earth

Of course, this is our planet.

From space, it looks blue because of all the sea and also the water vapour covering the land areas.

About two-thirds of the planet’s surface is water.

Earth is 93 million miles away from the sun and a quarter of a million miles from the moon. In kilometres, that is 150 kilometres from the sun and about 384,400 km from the moon. These are approximate distances as it changes throughout the year.

The Earth goes around the sun once a year.

The moon goes around the Earth every 27.3 days. This is known as a lunar month.

The diameter of the Earth at the Equator is 7928 miles, or 12,760 kilometres.

 

Mars

Mars comes after Earth.

It is named after the Roman god Mars the god of war because it looks red sometimes in the sky and this reminded people of the blood that you get in battles.

It is often called the red planet and can be spotted in the sky with the naked eye, that is without using a telescope.

Mars is much smaller than Earth. Its diameter is about half of the Earth’s.

Mars rotates once in 24 hours 39 minutes, so the length of its day is almost the same as Earth’s. It has two moons, called Phobos and Deimos. They are not round like the moon but irregular.

Jupiter

After Mars we get Jupiter.  This is a very big planet, 1000 times smaller than the sun but two and a half times bigger than all of the other planets in the solar system put together.

Jupiter and Saturn are both gas giants.

Jupiter has an area called the Great Red Spot – you can see it on photographs.  There are constant storms here. This area alone is 1.3 times as wide as the earth.

Jupiter is made up of hydrogen and helium as well as other elements which possibly gives it a rocky core. Jupiter has many moons, at least 74,  including four that were discovered by Galileo Galilei in 1610. The largest of these is called Ganymede and it has a diameter that is larger than the planet Mercury.

Saturn

Next is Saturn which has amazing rings around it.  These rings consist of small rocks that held in a particular orbit.

Saturn is another gas giant, It is the outer layer that is made of gas, The core is probably iron, nickel and rock,  and then there is a layer of metallic hydrogen, with hydrogen and helium surrounding that.

Saturn also has a number of moons, at least 62. 53 of the moons are officially named.  The biggest is called Titan and that is bigger than the planet Mercury.

 

 

Uranus

Uranus is even further away. Uranus, along with Neptune are known as ice giants,  as their interiors are filled with ice and rocks.

Uranus is unique in that it rotates on its side.

It has wind speeds up to 900 km an hour.

It is also the only planet that has been named after a Greek god rather than a Roman god.

Uranus has 27 named moons and 24 are named after characters in Shakespeare plays and 3 after characters in a poem by Alexander Pope. One of these Ariel appears both in The Tempest by Shakespeare and in the poem by Pope.

Voyager 2 was the closest to Uranus on its voyage on January 24, 1986.

Neptune

Neptune is named after the Roman god of the sea. It is now accepted as being the farthest known planet from the sun. Neptune’s atmosphere is made up of hydrogen and helium but its interior is made up of ices such as water, ammonia and methane.  Its wind speeds reach up to 2100 km an hour!

In 1613 Galileo noticed Neptune but he thought it was just another star.  It is thought that if he had noticed it a few days earlier when the sky was clearer and tracked it he would have realised it was a planet.

Voyager 2 flew past Neptune on 25th August 1989.

Pluto

And as I said before Pluto is no longer classified as a planet, but you will often see it in a list of planets,  especially if the article or book was written before August 2006.

Pluto has a strange orbit around the sun so sometimes it is nearer the sun than Neptune.

Easy Flower Crafts For Kids

Easy Flower Crafts For Kids

It is lovely to get flowers through the post from time to time (I recommend Bunches UK) but when you have children, it is even better to receive their own creations.

To get them used to making flowers you could encourage them to make flowers for a variety of different occasions. Consider family members’ birthdays, anniversaries, get well soon times and then you will be sure to be added to the list at some point.

Here is a Mother’s Day card example from Easy Peasy who I will tell you more about below Junk Modelling.

Junk Modelling

When I started teaching quite a few years ago we used to have a junk modelling afternoon every so often. I loved it and so did the kids. They used to make some amazing models.

Sometimes I was more directive and the model had to be to do with our topic at the time. Other times I was teaching them new skills. Sometimes they were allowed to do whatever they wanted. It was great to see them incorporating the skills that I had been working on with them previously, and see the models become more complex as the year went on.

Although the following craft projects are quite prescriptive, you don’t need to follow all the instructions to the letter. See what materials you have already at home. Let the children consider what they would like to do and how they might improve on some of the ideas. Use the ideas as an inspiration rather than a blueprint that they have to follow exactly.

Easy Peasy and Fun has 25 original ideas with super photos

This is my favourite on the Easy Peasy site (I love that name!) because they look so realistic. If you click on the link below the picture you can see how to make them. They are Calla Lilies.

https://www.easypeasyandfun.com/flower-crafts/

Some of the ideas on this page are suitable for toddlers and some for older children.

I would also recommend taking a look at the sunflowers underneath this picture on the Easy Peasy site.

For younger children the button activity is easy peasy, but older children could do something similar and I bet it would look fantastic.

DLTK

If you’re looking for very simple activities for younger children then DLTK is excellent.

My favourite on this page is the hand-printed tulip flowers.

If you like real coffee, then the coffee filter paper flowers are a very original idea.

Fairy Flower Lights by Red Ted Art

These amazing fairy lights are made from egg boxes. What a brilliant idea! When I first saw this picture I thought it would be good for slightly older children to do. Actually on the website there are some great pictures of very young children creating most of the artwork.

Go to https://www.redtedart.com/egg-carton-spring-crafts-blossom-fairy-lights-from-egg-cartons/?cn-reloaded=1 and start making your very own fairy lights.

Parts of a flowers

Here we have another idea for using egg boxes. This is more like the pictures you often see younger children making, however, this activity is part of a science project with the children using the picture to learn the names of the different parts of the flower.

DIY Egg Carton Daffodils by Caitlin Ball

I hope you like eating eggs as here’s another idea for using up those old egg boxes.

I’m pondering putting some of these in my garden for some all year round colour.

Origami flowers by Here Come the Girls Blog

There are lots of origami flowers on the internet. I particularly like these ones. As with most flowers, they look better in bunches as you can see on the website mentioned underneath the photograph. there are detailed instructions with photographs every step of the way.

http://www.herecomethegirlsblog.com/2013/03/28/how-to-make-origami-flowers.html

One of the nice things about this idea is that you only need paper although it’s good if it’s colourful paper. Also, you can do little bits of the project if you only have a short amount of time.

You could do this sort of activity on holiday, all you’d have to take with you is some glue and a few paper clips. You could buy a couple of magazines when you are at your destination and use the paper from them. If it is a magazine that you want to read, you could just tear out the adverts. Alternatively, you could go to the information tourist information office, collect some leaflets and find out about the place you are staying and then when you finish with the leaflets you could make use of those.

A sewing activity by Hello Wonderful

We probably all remember doing something like this when we were at school. You could buy new wool but you might just find you’ve got lots of bits and pieces of wool or yarn that could be used equally well.

If you haven’t got any wool and you need to buy some you might want to consider buying a ball of wool that changes colour giving a sort of rainbow effect rather than buying lots of different coloured balls of wool.
