Our timetable for the day is above which will show you when each lesson will be. We will stick to these video times for the forseeable which should help you plan your day around this.

We will continue with the 3 video lessons a day, there will be 15 minutes of input and then the rest of the time will be your own to go and do the activities.

We will be marking this work and using it as proof of attendance for each day.

Maths

Today we are going to remind ourselves how to divide fractions by whole numbers.

See the poster below for a reminder.

Complete the worksheet below - do not forget to simplify the answer once you have divided it if they can be simplified!

Then complete pages 22 & 23 from your maths CGP book. They look at multiplying and dividing fractions as we have done today and yesterday.

English

I'm going to go through some SPaG in our Google Classroom Meeting. Again, make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.

We're going to start looking at a piece of punctuation that is so important in writing but we often struggle to accurately put into our work: the comma!

Starting with page 40 in our CGP SPaG books, we will complete looking at commas in a list. Have a look at the video below to help with this.

After this, we are going to look at page 41 which is using commas to avoid ambiguity.

Ambiguity means confusion (when something isn't clear). So if we want to use commas to avoid ambiguity, we mean using commas to make sure our sentences are clear and easy to understand.

Watch the link below to explain how to ensure our sentences make full sense.

Finally, we are going to look at pagr 42 and using commas in subordinate clauses.

We always use a comma after our subordinate clause if it comes at the start of a sentence.

E.g. Once you have laid the table, you can watch TV.

However, if the first part of our sentence is not a subordinate clause, we do not need it. An easy tip to check, is read the first part of the sentence, if it makes sence on its own then it doesn't need a comma. If it doesn't make sense, then it needs a comma!

P.E.

Having been busy trying to keep fit at home, I stumbled upon these videos below: give them ago and let me know what you think.
