Tuesday 26th January

Happy Tuesday Morning - I hope you have woken up feeling great today!


Here are the activities we would like you to complete today. You can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail a copy to us each day.


1) English

Today’s lesson is all about complex sentences and subordinate clauses – a super feature of Year 3/4 writing! This is a tricky subject so listen carefully and Ms Johnson will talk you through what you need to do. If you find any of the tasks hard, carry on watching and the answers will be explained.


Here is a link to your lesson:


I have also put an optional powerpoint all about subordinate clauses in the resources below. If you need a little more help understanding subordinate clauses, read through the powerpoint. You may want to ask a grown up or older sibling to read it with you.


2) Maths - Fractions

The next two lessons remind us how to find half of a shape or an amount.

Lesson 2:

  1. Watch the video clip.
  2. Read the information that tells us what a fraction is.
  3. Watch the second video and read the top tip.
  4. Complete activity one and activity two (link for activity 2 -
  5. Play the game to consolidate your learning.


Continue with lesson 2 of the Oak Academy lessons -


3) Spellings

Let’s get practising! Tomorrow is test day so I want you to practise your spellings in your favourite way. Will you draw a picture of your word or use colours to write them in a rainbow pattern? Can you put your words into a sentence? Can you write them in alphabetical order?


4) Topic

Today we will be learning all about tone and shading. Open up the 'Tone and Shading presentation' and read the explanation. Then, open up ‘Tone and Shading activity’ and ‘Tone and Shading activity 2’. Work your way through each, paying attention to how heavy you’re pressing on your pencil. You can do this activity with a normal writing pencil, special art pencils or even a pencil crayon. It doesn’t work with a felt tip though.


5) Yoga Quest

Fantastic! We made it to the end of Shark’s Bay! Our next adventure takes us across Desert Gorge. Don't forget to tick off the places you have visited so far, you will find your new map in the resources section.
