SPAG: Subordinate clauses!


LIVE LEARNING AT 11 am on TEAMS: Subordinate Clauses!



Chapter 21 Scorpion and Chapter 22 Stars

Listen to Mr Hazelby read Chapters 21 and 22. Write down 3 powerful verbs or adjectives you hear.

Discuss with an adult what happened in today's chapters: use these question words to help you understand the chapter :Who, What, Where, Why



L.I: To Use Subordinate Clauses

Write about the activities that Ryan and Cleo have done together in the book so far. Add detail by using subordinate clauses! Look at the examples to help you; the main clause is in blue and the subordinate clause in gold!


Ryan and Cleo became a real team because Ryan helped pull her up after she fell down the pit  in the tomb.

Cleo and Ryan went back to the tomb at sunrise, telling no one where they were going.

The museum, where Cleo and Ryan were given the papyri about Rahotep, was on the other side of the river Nile.


Now write 5 sentences of your own about Ryan and Cleo.




The Teachers share a story!


A chance to talk and connect!


Draw yourself as a Pharaoh!

Take a photo of your face and head in profile or draw yourself using a mirror!

Find out about the Egyptian head dresses the pharaohs used and decide which one you want to wear in your portrait.


These portraits have been drawn and painted on rough parcel paper to make the portrait look ancient!


You could use a wet teabag to rub on white paper first! Notice that the artists have added a royal cartouche which shows their name in heiroglyphs to complete the portrait. To remind us of how to draw cartouches, watch the video from a previous lesson below.




How to Draw A Cartouche!
