Writing - The Highwayman : Vocabulary and complex sentences

In this lesson, we will explore vocabulary in the opening verse of the poem and practise writing complex sentences using this vocabulary.

Can you recall what the different sentence types are?

 

Sentences can be structured in different ways.
A simple sentence has a subject and ONLY ONE verb:

  • The girl sprinted after the tiger.
  • The cat purred.

A compound sentence is formed when you join two main clauses with a connective. In a compound sentence the clauses are linked by coordinating conjunctions / connectives (and, but, so, or). 

  • I like bananas and I like grapes.
  • Zoe can be rude at times but she is a nice girl.

A complex sentence is formed when you join a main clause and a subordinate clause with a connective. A subordinate clause is one that relies on a main clause to make sense.The connectives in complex sentences are subordinating conjunctions and they tell us about the order or the place in which things happened or specify a cause or effect relationship between events. Connectives used in complex sentences include after, although, as, because, if, since, unless, when.

  • I love roast potatoes, although my mum prefers them mashed.
  • You need to prepare for the spelling test tomorrow if you want to get all your spellings right.
  • The big dog barked whenever I knocked on the door.

 

Green and Yellow - Complete the task as stated, then try to rewrite each of your sentences in a different way. You could try starting with the main clause or the subordinate clause. 

Orange and Red - Complete the task as stated, then try to rewrite one of your sentences in a different way. You could try starting with the main clause or the subordinate clause. 

Blue - Complete the task as stated.

 

Maths - Today you will be learning to read coordinates in four quadrants. It may help you to watch the video from Monday's learning, your lesson's video is here and your worksheet is at the bottom of the page.

 

Green and Yellow - Complete questions 1 - 3 then challenge yourself with questions 4 and 5. 

Orange and Red - Complete questions 1 - 3

Blue - Today you will be moving on your grid and recording the new coordinats you arrive at. Your worksheet uses the word 'translate' . So if it asks you to translate your position 3 squares to the right this means move three squares to the right. When you look at your worksheet you will see that I have completed an example for you, I would like you to answers questions 1 - 3 today.

 

Foundation - PE & Assembly

 

PE - Choose an activity to do with your family

 

 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?
