Tuesday

 

Today, we are looking at using commas in different ways.

There is a powerpoint to support you below.

 

We use commas:

 

  • To separate items in a list;

In my fruit bowl, I have bananas, satsumas and kiwis.

 

  • To separate extra information in a sentence;

The boy, who was only eight, won the award for best actor.

 

  • Between clauses;

I was feeling really tired, so I got up and went to bed.

 

  • To show direct speech after a clause;

Tommy shouted, “Help me please, I’m stuck in here!”

 

  • After fronted adverbials.

Fortunately, the next bus came five minutes later.

 

Now, write these sentences out carefully and place the commas correctly.

 

  1. The wrapping paper had blue white red and yellow stripes. (Hint: 2 commas for a list)
  2. 2. The shard the tallest building in Britain is located in London. (Hint: 2 commas for extra information)
  3. 3. The candle was burning brightly but I could see it was about to go out. (Hint: 1 comma for breaking up a sentence)
  4.  4. Thomas smiled warmly and said “Good afternoon.” (Hint: 1 comma to show speech)
  5. 5. Dramatically the song finished with a bang! (Hint: 1 comma for a fronted adverbial)

 

Complete the following tasks:

 

6. Write a list of five things you would need to camp out for the night. Write your list as a sentence.

 

7. Can you add extra information to this sentence using an embedded clause?

More Maths…..

 

Twinkl has a massive range of maths worksheets available if you wish to supplement the daily class maths.

 

The White Rose website has stopped providing free worksheets for children, though you can still access the video clips for free.

 

 

Optional Creative time:

 

Keeping up to date:

Watch Newsround and discuss what is happening in the wider world. Talk to your family about the stories which are on today. What do you think?

 

 

 Learn to tie a bow and tie your shoe laces.

 

 

Revisit telling the time. Can you read a clock with hands? If this is still tricky, try to spend some time practising with an adult using a toy clock or this website:

 

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock

 

Make a time capsule

 

Here is a lovely idea for something to look back on when you are older.    Make a little time capsule in a tin or plastic box. You could even bury it in the garden, or put it away safely until you are a lot older! It will be something interesting to look back on.

 

 

   

 

 Everyday learning:

 

Active Time

Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy.

This might be:

 

  • You can find Pav’s work out activities! You can find his workouts in the resources section. Have a look at Week 4.
  • PE with Joe! (Joe Wicks’ daily workout on YouTube)
  • Set up your own carousel – you could include running, jumping, kangaroo hops, mummy kicks, star jumps. Do 30 seconds of each in rotation, then repeat two or three times.
  • How many laps of your garden can you run in 10 minutes? Can you continue without walking? If that is hard work, you could run one lap, and then walk one lap.

 

 

Reading: Aim for at least one of these each day.

 

  • Read independently – this could be your own book or a book from the Bug Club books which also have activities to complete – comprehension questions and little quizzes.
  • Twinkl and Oxford Owls also have a selection of eBooks you can read online, and you can also visit the Norfolk library service and "borrow" online books. 
  • Read to an adult or older sibling. Talk about your book and what you are enjoying. Can you read with really good expression and intonation? Can you use voices for the different characters?
  • You can also read magazines, comics or newspapers – ask your parents for ideas of what else you could read. How about a recipe book, machine manual or instruction booklet?
  • Remember to explore new vocabulary when you read. Can you look in a dictionary to find out what new words mean?
  • Remember, you can keep a reading record at the back of your writing book if you like.

 

Spellings: aim for 10 minutes a day.

Practise some of the spelling words you need to learn.

Start with the Year one / two words and find out which ones you still need to learn. You can tick the ones you can spell off by heart. If you are confident with all of these, you can begin learning the Year 3 and 4 words.

 

Pick 4 or 5 a day and use LOOK-SAY-COVER-WRITE-CHECK to practise each one. 

 

Times tables: aim for 10 minutes a day.

 

2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s for Year 3. 

Year 4 – Your goal is to know all the times tables up to 12 x 12.

Write out the table you are learning from memory. Then ask an adult to muddle them up. Ask them to test you.

You can also play Hit the Button online, which is an easy and fun way to practise tables.

 

And to finish: Here is the answer to Monday’s riddle:

 

Riddle:  What is always in front of you but can’t be seen?

Answer:  The Future!

 

Tuesday’s riddle:

 

What has four eyes but can’t see?

 

I will post the answer on Wednesday.
