Writing - Shakespeare: Macbeth - Complex Sentences

Using this lesson, you will learn to use complex sentences. At this point all the children definitely know how to use simple and compound sentences. These are:

A simple sentence is built from the minimum of a subject and a main verb. It can be very short in length but doesn't have to be. There are several reasons for using simple sentences. For example, a series of short simple sentences used together may be used to create tension, as in this extract:

  • 'We rounded the corner. He was there. We stood in awe at the sight.'

Short simple sentences are frequently used to offer facts, so that they are easily understood by a reader. For example:

  • 'Paris is the capital city of France.

A compound sentence generally joins two simple sentences together. You can use words such as 'and', 'or' and 'but' to join the ideas. These are called connectives.

For example:

  • It was cold but we still went to town.
  • It was raining and we stayed indoors.

This makes the two ideas equal in the sentence - if you take away one part of it, you are left with a simple sentence again. These are very common when speaking and they are not difficult to understand.

Green and Yellow - Write the complex sentences as required. 

Orange and Red - Write the complex sentences as required. Look below if you need a hand. 

Blue - Main clause is the main part of the sentence. The subordinate clause is the extra information. You join these 2 ideas with a comma. 

  • I went to the shop, while my stomach rumbled. 

The main clause makes sense on its own: I went to the shop

The subordinate clause does not tell us everything: while my stomach rumbled what? what happened as my stomach rumbled?

Maths - Division: Multiply and Divide by 9

Similar skills to the previous day but using a new multiplication table. Today's lesson builds on the work from yesterday. Remember there are many tricks and patterns for multiplying by 9. Check here for one of my favourite tricks - you might remember it. 

Use the introduction sheet below - picture by picture - to learn/recap the necessary skills. 

Green and Yellow - Complete the CS divide by 9 sheet for g_y. 

Orange and Red - Complete the CS divide by 9 sheet for o_r.  

Blue - Complete the WRM divide by 9 sheet. 


Foundation - PE - Joe Wickes and/or a Walk

Go for a walk

Remember to follow the Covid safety guidelines. What can you see around your local area that has changed? Can you see any signs of spring coming yet? How is the weather different? Did you see any animals?


Joe Wickes

Can your child on one or all of these days take part in this exercise class. Its a good way to keep up an active lifestyle while in lockdown.
