Here is a home workout for you courtesy of Mr Ladlow (a big thank you!):

Warm up:

Main workout: repeat at least 3 times


Cool down:

Thank you Mr Ladlow!

Maths: today we would like you to plan a trip to the zoo and you are in charge of the money! Give yourself a budget (an amount of money to spend). Here are some suggestions –

two people = £40

family of 4 = £100

family of 6 = £180

You then need to decide how much each item will cost. Things to consider: entry (ticket cost), lunch, treats, souvenir shop etc

You will need to have an amount per person. Are they going to be different prices for things depending on ages? It’s up to you!

Here are some examples for you:

Writing: to use embedded clauses:

Embedded Clauses

Using embedded clauses is another way of writing a complex sentence.

The suborinate clause (the bit that doesnt make sense on its own) goes in the middle of the main clause (must make sense on its own).

They are another way of giving more information to the reader.

We often, but not always, separate embedded clauses from the main sentence using commas on either side (you can use brackets or dashes too).

Embedded clauses often begin with ‘who’ or ‘which’. Here is an example:

‘My bike is broken’ = main clause and makes sense on its own

‘which is very old’ = embedded clause and wouldn’t make sense on its own.

Here are some more for you:

Scar, who is Mufasa’s brother, is an evil lion.

Mufasa (who tries to save his son) is trampled by the stampede.

The Elephant Graveyard – which is full of laughing hyenas – is a dangerous place for a lion cub!

Have a fantastic weekend. Remember to be kind and patient.

Best wishes,

Mrs Hewitt and Miss Reece
