Grammar: relative clauses and relative pronouns
It is Friday, so it has to be some sort of grammar!
Today, we are going to look again at relative clauses. It would be good to recap these as, from the Kahoot reports, these would appear to be a bit of a sticking point.
Relative clauses give extra information about a noun
Relative pronouns introduce the extra information
With that in mind, have a look at the BBC Bitesize guide below, it is really helpful and will take you step by step through when you might want to use them.
Mathematics: test marking
Your Friday test marking skills are needed once again. Hopefully you will have a more consistent candidate this week!
You know what to do:
- Correct, if needed

Topic work: debate follow-up
On Wednesday, some of the class were involved in a debate Zoom about what to do with some of the statues of people around the UK that have either controversial or objectively horrible history.
This was inspired by recent events in the news, such as the tearing down of the Edward Colston statue in Bristol.
During the debate, many children thought that the statues could be used to help educate others about the whole history behind the people they represent. Your task today is to design a plaque that you would put alongside the statue of Edward Colston if it were to be displayed in a museum.
What would include - would you include both good deeds and bad? Would you include how it was taken down? It is up to you.
