Here is your learning for today! We will go through it on our Zoom call at 10:20 am today and we can answer any questions you have. Answers for maths and grammar will be posted later on today, so you can check your work.
DAILY SPELLING CHALLENGE!
Today, why not learn how to spell these tricky words. Or, if you think you already know them, get an adult or older sibling to test you! This blog post tells you some fun ways to practise spellings: https://www.lawfordmead.essex.sch.uk/blogs/year4/2020/03/16/spellings/
In addition, also practice this week’s spellings: careful, thankful, helpful, wonderful, useless, careless, homeless, hopeless
Remember, PRACTISE makes PERFECT! 🙂
Grammar: This week will focus on clause – main clause and subordinate clause.
Example: He did not go out because it was raining.
In the above sentence, he did not go out makes sense on its own. So it is the main clause.
Because it was raining does not make sense on its own, so it is the subordinate clause.
We use conjunctions (subordinating conjunctions) to join subordinate clause to a main clause for it to make sense.
Click on the following link to learn more about main clause and subordinate clause. NOTE: In this video, MAIN clause is called the MAJOR clause. They mean the same thing.
Reading: Find your reading book, picture book or magazine and spend some time enjoying reading, either to yourself or to a parent. Do not forget to record it in your reading record and putting it on seesaw!
Times table starter:

Watch the following video for a virtual assembly all about this week’s news story! You may need to pause the video to give yourself some more time to think about the questions!
