Spelling Shed - 'ough'(15 mins)

SPAG - Identifying Relative Clauses (20 mins)

Maths - Problem solving using four operations including equals sign (30 mins)

Go Noodle: Start the day off with a good old Go Noodle to get those hearts racing.

Wake Up - Fresh Start Fitness | GoNoodle

A slow and easy workout to wake up your body - perfect to get moving but not sweating!

Fluent in 5:

Please complete the questions above, aim to complete them within five minutes and then use the inverse operation to check your answers.


Reading: Get yourself in your cosy spaces, make yourself a drink and spend 20 - 30 minutes getting lost in a book. Remember you can also use this time to complete any outstanding STAR Reader quizzes by following the link HERE.


Spelling Shed: Download the attached spelling sheets attached below that have a look at our spelling rule for this week: Words containing the letter string 'ough' that make the 'aw' sound.


Complete the sentences and then have a go at playing the suggested noughts and crosses game with a family member.


If you don't have anyone to play against, you could always try to join this weeks spellings to create a crossword.

SPAG:  Today, we are going to complete our final session on clauses and to do this we are going to be looking at relative clauses.


What is a relative clause?

A relative clause is a special type of subordinating clause because it adds extra information to a sentence by using a relative pronoun: who, which where, that, whose, whom, when.


A relative clause can go in the middle (embedded) or at the end of a sentence. For example:


The lady, who was crossing the road, waved at the children. 


Mr Brown didn't eat the cake, which appeared to be burnt.


Both of these are relative clauses as they add extra information to the noun they are relating to (lady and cake) and they start with a relative pronoun.


When you remove a relative clause from a sentence, the rest of the sentence should still make sense. E.g. The lady waved at the children.


Read the information above and then log on to SATs Companion to complete the activity 'Identifying Relative Clauses'. I have also attached below some videos, which explain them in a different way.

Maths: Today we are going to continue looking at applying the four operations when problem solving.

Remember to follow the RUCSAC method when problem solving.

Remember, if you get a problem that starts with a number and tells you where you end up. Your job is to work backwards doing the inverse (opposite) of everything that they did.


Log on to SATs Companion and complete the activity 'Solve Number Problems Using All Four Operations Including The Equals Sign'.

PSHE: This afternoon 6B, I would like you to have a go at making your own 'Jars of Positivity'.


This is exactly what it sounds like - it is a jar full of positive thoughts so that when you are feeling a bit fed up or not 100%, you can open the jar and remind yourselves of all the lovely things you have in your life and re-energise yourselves with positivity.


You could fill it with:


- Positive memories (friends/school)

- Family memories

- Quotes that make you smile

- Kind things people have said to you

- I am, I can, I have statements e.g. I am a good friend to others, I have a loving family, I can thrive when faced with a challenge.

- You could put small photos in.


If you don't have an easily accessible jar, you could always use a small box.

You can personalise your jar/box in anyway that you like to make it special to you.
