Fronted Adverbials - PPT - Activity Sheet and Wordbank

Fronted Adverbials - PPT - Activity Sheet and Wordbank

This complete lesson includes a Powerpoint (editable) which recaps the three types of fronted adverbials - who, where and how. There is then a worksheet (editable), which is differentiated 3 ways for the children to complete. The PPT ends with an opportunity for the children to place missing commas after the fronted adverbial to punctuate the sentences correctly. Also included is an editable wordbank. The activities are themed around the story of Theseus and the Minotaur so this would complement teaching on Greek Myths; however, no prior knowledge is necessary.
