Your English challenge today is to practice using main and subordinate clauses. Remember your main clause contains the verb and subject of your sentence and the subordinate clause is the 'extra' information that can be taken out and the sentence still make sense. These clauses are usually separated by commas.
There are two worksheets below the first slightly easier than the second. If you don't have a printer don't worry, most ask you to write in the missing bit of the sentence or underline one of the clauses. You can do this in you pink exercise book.
On mymaths you will find another recap of the important arithmetic skills we have learnt across this year. Have a go, use your pink book to write down your workings, especially with the long multiplication and long division questions it will make them easier.
A chance for your imagination to run wild this afternoon. We have been looking at inheritance, evolution and adaption this half term, so can you use your knowledge to think up a brand new animal. I want to you to think about where it might live (its habitat) and what characteristics (features) it might have to help it live there. Just like we did last week, with our example of the lion (still on the page from last Tuesday) but for a completely made up by you. This might be like the animals we created at school with the hybrid animals, entirely up to you. Draw and label these in your pink exercise books.
Don't forget the pages for your homework books can be found on the page before this under Friday 3rd April
