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:
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).
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.
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.
Green and Yellow - Today we are continuing the work on equivalent fractions. Your lesson can be found here. This webpage might help you see why these fractions can be the same value even though they look different. Your sheet can be found at the bottom of the page.
Orange and Red - Tenths. This is a value out of 10. Think of the mm we use when measuring. 4mm is 4/10 as there are 10mm in 1cm. Today's lesson here is about parts out of 10. Complete the sheet found below.
Blue - Today you will be moving on your grid and recording the new coordinates 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 points 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.
