Today’s Activities

Today begins with English activities, followed by Maths and finally Topic, which today is History.



Today you are going to be playing a fronted adverbials game! Look at 020221.year4.GPS2 and watch the BBC Bitesize video to remind yourself about the rules for using fronted adverbials. If you want an extra challenge, you can complete the tasks underneath the video. To play the game, you will need 020221.year4.GPS2game. If you'd like to complete the activity practically, you can print and cut out the fronted adverbials and main clauses, then match them up to create a sentence. Make sure you take a photo! If you would rather not print out the game, you can match the fronted adverbials and main clauses by looking at them on the screen and then writing them straight onto paper.



For handwriting today, you will need 020221.year4.handwriting1. Read the tongue twisters, slowly at first then quicker. Neatly write the tongue twisters onto the worksheet, or into a handwriting book. Make sure you use your Eastchurch handwriting!
