Good morning Year 5! I cannot believe we are midway through the school week already! Did you like yesterday’s lesson looking at the greater bulldog bat? I couldn’t believe how big they were and would definitely scream if I came across one! Thank you to those children who are continuously sending their work. It’s brilliant to see how hard you are working.
I have some news about GETEPIC…Year 1 have taken over us with how many books they have read! We have read 310 so keep going! I cannot believe how well you have done with this and how enthusiastic you have been. Let me know which books you have enjoyed on there so I can recommend them to the rest of the class.
Here are your lessons for today. You must blog or email your work.
LO - to use a range of subordinating conjunctions to write multi-clause (complex) sentences.
Yesterday’s lesson focused on coordinating conjunctions and you learnt that there are 7 coordinating conjunctions. Can you say them all in your head? Today we are continuing with conjunctions but are going to look at subordinating conjunctions. A subordinating clause is a part of a sentence that adds additional information to the main clause. A subordinating conjunction is simply the word/words that is used to join a subordinating clause to another clause or sentence.
"He was annoyed, the train had stopped."
"He was annoyed because the train had stopped."
By adding 'because' we are linking the subordinating clause "the train had stopped" with the main clause "He was annoyed".
