11:00-11:15 Break

 

11:15-12:30 English

 

Show (applying)

LO: To show my understanding of embedded clauses.

SC1. I can consider how embedded clauses improve a sentence.

SC2. I can identify where an embedded clause can be used.

SC3. I can add embedded clauses when improving a sentence.

 

Yesterday, we learnt about embedded clauses and the punctuation we can use. We discovered that embedded clauses can be used to add new information to a text. We also learnt that embedded clauses are always in the middle of a sentence and that some embedded clauses are also relative clauses (if we use a relative pronoun).

Today, I have created a piece of text which uses lots of simple sentences. I want you to improve these sentences, using embedded clauses, and turn the sentences into complex sentences.

 

Task One

To support you with your learning I have created a video.

 

 

 

 

If you need additional support, on how to use embedded clauses, please watch this video.

 

 

 

 

Task Two

Attached to the class page there is a text which you will need to improve using embedded clauses. When using your embedded clauses, you must remember to use the correct punctuation. You do not need to print the text; you can simply rewrite it directly into your home learning book. I will be looking to see if you have varied your use of punctuation – brackets, dashes and commas.

Remember:

An embedded clause is always in the middle of a sentence and it is surrounded by a main clause. An embedded clause will not make sense on its own.

 

Task Three – Superstar Challenge

To show that you really understand embedded clauses I would like you to continue the setting description which you have just edited. Remember to use embedded clauses to add extra detail and to use your “precise” expanded noun phrases to create a concise and clear picture for the reader.

When writing the next part of the setting description you may wish to plan out your ideas first. You may also find it helpful to draw the world you are describing.
