SPAG (15 minutes): Commas

Commas are a very important part of writing because they can be used in a variety of ways. They can be used in: a list, after openers, to split clauses and to avoid confusion. Today you are going to focus on commas to add extra information, which we know as an embedded relative clause.

Task 1 – rewrite each sentence with the commas in the correct place to show the extra information.

The charity auction which raised hundreds of pounds was a great success.

Pepperoni my favourite pizza topping is a kind of sausage.

The shepherd who’d lost all his sheep was very upset.

Task 2 – rewrite the sentences below, adding the embedded relative clause, making sure you use commas where they are needed.

Writing (45 minutes): To use a box up plan

Over the next two days, we are going to reflect on the year 2020. As a school, we want every child to write a letter about the year 2020 so that in the future other children can read these letters and understand what was so different about that year. Today, you are going to create a box up plan to help with your letter, which you will write tomorrow.

Look at my box up plan ideas on the video to help you. Good luck.
