LO: To use relative clauses.  


Parenthesis: Parenthesis is a word or phrase that is usually demarcated by brackets, commas or dashes to provide extra information. If the parenthesis is taken away, the sentence would still be complete and make sense without it.


Relative clause: A relative clause adds detail to the noun. It comes after the noun it is describing. A relative clause begins with a relative pronoun e.g. who, that, which, whose

Resources (including
exercise book being used)

English book, blue pen, pencil, ruler and green pen.



Click ‘Start Lesson’ then ‘Start Quiz’. First, complete the quiz. This is to show what you already know so don’t worry if you find some questions tricky. Record your score in your English book.

Then, scroll up to the top of the page then click ‘Next Activity’.


Read these instructions then watch the video. The teacher will explain when to pause. Complete all work in your English book under your Date and LO, not on a sheet of paper. You can reply to the teacher out loud just like a real lesson! When it says ‘Your turn’ please copy the sentence that has a relative clause into your English book. Underline (with a ruler) the relative clause and circle the relative pronoun. Write down where the relative clause is within the sentence e.g. The relative clause is in the middle of/at the end of the sentence. Then mark in green pen when the teacher tells you the answer.

Word of the day – Pause the video once the word of the day is introduced. Write the word and meaning into your book then use the word in two different sentences and find synonyms and antonyms (as we have done in school).

Let’s have a go at writing some of your own – pause the video when the teacher has discussed the sentences. Write the sentences in your English book and add relative clauses to them. Make sure you choose the appropriate relative pronoun and remember to punctuate your sentences. When the teacher shares some examples, edit your sentences in green if you need to.


INDEPENDENT TASK- Listen to the explanation and then pause the video and close the video. Scroll up to the top of the page and click ‘Next Activity’. Click through the slides until you see the independent task (should be larger than on the video). Complete the task in your English book. The task asks you to write 3 sentences but I think we can challenge ourselves and write a little more. Please write at least 5 sentences including relative clauses.  Remember to check your spelling and punctuation. There are some interesting sentence openers to use on one of the slides.


Then, resume the video by scrolling up to the top of the page and selecting resume and mark your work in green pen. As you have all written your own sentences using relative clauses, you will need to self-assess by following the teacher’s instructions (correct use of relative pronouns and correct use of commas). You may also want to ask an adult at home to check through your work. If you need to edit your sentences, do this in green pen.


Spellings- This is additional spelling work to your normal spelling test which will still be on a Friday.

Again, click ‘Next Activity’. You should see ‘Start Quiz’ complete the quiz. Record your score in your English book then send your English and Maths score to your class teacher when you send your ‘Good Morning’ message on I Am Learning tomorrow. You may also want to share your fantastic sentences with your teacher!


Please make sure you practise the spellings that you have learnt this week on Oak National Academy as you will be tested in tomorrow’s lesson. Remember, this is separate to the spelling test that you normally have on Friday.
