Today, I would like you to follow the link below to access work on how to relative clauses . You will also be learning about the banana frog. Remember to watch the video before completing the tabs marked the grammar bit and whiteboard challenges. If you would like to challenge yourself further you can continue with the writing ideas. I am looking forward to seeing the work that you produce.

Work through the PowerPoint focusing on when Jim sees Rosie again.

- What do you think might have happened to Rosie the night after Jim's mother arrived?

- Why did Rosie and Judd lose their jobs?

- What questions might Jim have for Rosie?


Activity: Write a list of questions that Jim might have for Rosie. Remember Rosie knew Jim's mother so he might have questions about his ma or he might have questions to ask about his sisters. Try to think of at least 7 questions.



Starter- Complete the mental arithmetic questions. Set yourself a timer of 10 minutes to try and complete as many questions as you can. Remember to use the methods that you have learnt about in school.

Work through the PowerPoint and listen to the audio clips to help you. Once you have done that try the activity. If you are feeling confident with finding the mean try the challenge activity.
