Wednesday 20th January
Below you will find all the learning for today. This includes reading, writing, maths and a foundation subject (Science, Geography, History, R.E, Computing, art or Design Technology). The coloured activities should be completed if your child is in that group in class. All reading texts and worksheets can be found at the bottom of the page, some reading texts will be posted Monday for use all week.
Reading - Today we will be reading from the text, you need to begin on page 21 from where we left off on Monday until the end of page 22.
Predict - Whether Macbeth will indeed follow the advice of his ambitious wife.
Explain why Macbeth is not happy to kill the King.
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:
Short simple sentences are frequently used to offer facts, so that they are easily understood by a reader. For example:
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.
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.
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?
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.
