Subordinate Clause Sentence Builder
In pairs the children cut out all the boxes. A white board is useful to use to lay them out on, so the children can add in any extra words or ideas with a whiteboard pen. The children build a simple sentence with two boxes, then they 'drop in' a clause with some extra information. This allows you to teach them to add in the commas and to decide whether you need a &'who&'; or a 'which&' for the subject of the sentence. This kept my Year 5s very busy for over an hour and progress and understanding was quick. (Sorry deleted by accident!)
