Wed 13th Jan

Good morning year 4! Here is another day of fun learning activities for you to complete


Morning Activity


To start the day off, spend 10 minutes completing arithmetic Pg 25. After 10 minutes, use the answers to mark and correct any you may have got wrong. REMEMBER TO SHOW YOUR WORKING OUT.



For literacy today, we are going to finish off our plan and add in the grammar. The success criteria will be the same as the one from yesterdays work as you are continuing to complete your plan.


First, if you haven't finished putting your facts under the correct headings from yesterday then please complete this first. 


Below is an example where you can check to see if you have put the facts under the correct heading.



Now, you need to add your grammar onto your plan. We want you to concentrate on Prepositional phrases, compound sentences (FANBOYS) and subordinate clauses (I SAW A WABUB).


First, next to your introduction paragraph we would like you to write a fronted adverbial in the grammar box.


An example  would be; Despite being over two thousand years ago, you can still see the remains of some of the Roman roads that were built in Britain. 


Next, we would like you to write two prepositional phrases, two compound sentences and two subordinate clause sentences next to each of your remaining paragraphs. We have saved an example of the plan below with one sentence in each box so that you know how to set yours out.


A prepositional phrase - Beside the road, the Romans built ditches to allow the roads to drain when it rained.


Compound sentence - The road network was so extensive that it included 80,000km of roads and it stretched across the Roman Empire.


Subordinate clause - Although the empire was vast, the Romans built a network of roads to join up their territories.


The documents below can be used as a reminder of words to use in these sentence types.



Example of a completed plan


Hi Y4,  Please click on the link below to work through your lesson.


Make sure that you play the voice clips so you can hear my instructions, and if you're able to, please download and print the sheet below to use for the next 5 weeks. Choose the level you think is best for you. (Have a look at them and see which one looks similar to the one I would give you at school if you're not sure!)


Any questions or problems, just ask your grown up to email me!


I look forward to seeing and hearing some of your work over the next few weeks! - You can always take pictures of your worksheet or record your work! Ms. Howes smiley
