Using conjunctions

by Bhavini Pandya May 4, 2020

This English What’s in my tray? activity develops the understanding of how to extend simple sentences by using conjunctions.

  • English (KS1 and KS2)
  • Easy to do at home
  • Developing sentence structure

What to do:

  • Make some word cards for the different subordinating conjunctions you could use(ours are the coloured bricks).
  • We have used word cards for the other types of words but you could write a simple sentence instead.
  • Write or make a simple sentence.
  • Pick a subordinating conjunction.
  • Now add the conjunction into the sentence to extend it.
  • Re-read your extended sentence to check it makes sense.
