Can you include it in a sentence? Remember capital letters and punctuation.


09:00 - 09:30 - Reading

Have a go at working out the Day 3 Challenge. The document is in the learning resources. 


11:30 - 12:30 - English

Read Lesson 3 – Sentence Starters.  Read the Skills powerpoint to recap on all the writing skills we have focused on this term and which we are aiming to include in our writing this week. 


  • Fronted adverbials  

  • Expanded noun phrases 

  • Prepositional phrases 

  • Subordinate conjunctions 


Look at the Recount Examples. Look out for language you like, especially the variety of sentence starters you read. Think about all the skills and features we are looking for. 


Write down any language you like. You can write these into the Skills Table (in Learning Resources) and add in your own ideas from yesterday’s Recount Planning Grid. The more ideas you have, the more exciting your sentence practice will be tomorrow. Alternatively, use subheadings for each skill into your book and record your ideas there.

Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


As you start to design, use your mood board. This is a record of all the design elements you liked last week so we should see them in your final design. Choose a medium you are confident in using. If you find paint tricky … don’t use it for your final design!


Look at the Design Steps WAGOLL. These are the steps I followed when I designed my album cover. You might find it helpful.


  • I looked at my mood board
  • I identified the elements I liked
  • I worked them into my own original design



Year 4 WAGOLLs - for some extra inspiration, have a look at some of the original artwork from last year’s Year 4 classes – there might be ideas there that you really like.
