Click ‘Start Lesson’. First, complete the quiz and record your score in your English book. 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.


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).

Set it out in your book like the example below -

Step 1 – imperative verb (write the verb too), semi-colon
