This week we are focusing on Grammar and Punctuation. MONDAY - Please work through the power point on understanding a simple sentence and compound sentence. Please note the children may call the 'subject' a 'noun' - either term is fine.

Tuesday - An adult to please chop up the sentences and the child to stick them back together. There are 2 individual simple sentences that can be joined by a conjunction to create a compound sentence. These conjunctions are co-ordinating conjunctions meaning they join 2 sentences together.


 Please use the conjunction fans to make some compound sentences. 

 Fan 1 is coordinating conjunctions that join 2 sentences together and go in the middle of the 2 sentences. NB coordinating conjunctions make compound sentences. 



Fan 2 is subordinating conjunctions. These can go at the beginning or end of a sentence to give addition information. They create a clause: 

Dependent Clauses contain a subject and a predicate, but they do not express a complete thought. Examples: When it is raining. Because you were late. Before you go to bed. All of these groups of words contain both a subject and a verb, but they cannot stand alone.


When a subordinating conjunction is used it makes a complex sentence. - Please note that naming this type of sentence is not a year 2 requirement but using the subordinating conjunction in their writing is. 


Task Please write some sentences of your own using the subordinating conjunction fan.
