Welcome to your second week of home learning. We hope you have had a good weekend and are excited for some more learning this week.
Remember, although it is important to keep practising your Maths and English skills while we are all at home, this is a great opportunity to be practising and learning some different skills using the resources you already have in your house. Such as:
- Bird Watching
- Model Building
- Music Playing/composing
Maths Extension (optional):
Using a ruler with millimetre (mm) and centimetre (cm) markings, measure some small objects around your house and write down their length in centimetres as a decimal, and also what it would be in 'tenths' with millimetres being the tenths.
For example: peg = 8.3cm = 8 whole ones and 3 tenths
shreddie = 2.4cm = 2 whole ones and 4 tenths
GOAL: Using different types of conjunction
Note for Adults:
Subordinating conjunctions: In Years 3 and 4, children are taught to use a range of subordinating conjunctions to extend their sentences such as when, because, if, unless, although and while. These join the main clause (a sentence which makes sense on its own) with a subordinate clause (a clause that does not make sense on its own). For example:
Peter ate his dinner quickly because he was hungry.
‘Peter ate his dinner quickly’ is the main clause because it makes sense on its own. However, ‘because he was hungry’ is not a sentence which makes sense on its own. This clause only makes sense once it is joined to the independent clause, ‘Peter ate his dinner quickly.’
