Extension to replace verb with a more powerful alternative.
Can I extend my sentences through use of conjunctions?

Work out the appropriate connective and second phrase.
Can I change the style of my sentences through new openers?
Pick up from yesterday and add different types of openers to their sentences using word banks and a range of openers (DADWAVERS).

Can I use a range of punctuation to avoid ambiguity in my writing?

Rule: Challenge Words
There are two activities uploaded onto Tapestry for you to complete and there are games on Spelling Shed for you to play as well.
Can I draw angles accurately?
Children need to draw lines correct to the nearest millimetre. They use a protractor to draw angles of a given size, and will need to be shown this new skill. Children continue to develop their estimation skills whilst drawing and measuring lines and angles.
Can I recognise angles on a straight line?
Children build on their knowledge of a right angle and recognise two right angles are equivalent to a straight line, or a straight line is a half of a turn.
Once children are aware that angles on a straight line add to 180 degrees, they use this to calculate missing angles on straight lines.
Can I recognise angles around a point?
Children need to know there are 360 degrees in a full turn.
This connects to their knowledge of right angles, full turns and compass points.
They need to know when they should measure an angle and when they should calculate the size of angle from given facts.
Can I recognise properties of triangles?
Children start by recapping the definition of a polygon and sort shapes into examples and non-examples of polygons.
Children will classify triangles for the using the names ‘isosceles’, ‘scalene’ and ‘equilateral’.
Can I recognise properties of quadrilaterals?
Children name quadrilaterals including a square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram and trapezium.
They describe their properties and highlight the similarities and differences between different quadrilaterals.
Children draw quadrilaterals accurately using knowledge of their properties.
Can I write a non-chronological report?
Read the selection of resources available looking at daily life in the Middle Ages.
Write a non-chronological report (double page spread) about daily life in the middle ages.
Include information about: Clothing, Homes, Differences between life in a city and life in the country.
Can I create a timeline by sequencing events chronologically?
Use timeline cards for significant monarchs and events in the middle ages (1066-1485) and order them chronologically.
Explain why you think these events might be significant.
Can I use a range of sources to explore an aspect of time?
What makes a good monarch?
Cut up a feudal pyramid – which order does this go in?
Who swears loyalty to who? Who works for who?
Does it matter if the top tiers don’t look after the bottom ones?
