Sentence Types

Sentence Types

A powerpoint created for use with my year 5 literacy set. It outlines the three types of sentences and explains how to use a subordinate clause in the middle of a main clause. It also include examples at the end for the children to identify the clauses. A set of sentences for children to add in subordinate clauses. I printed them to A3 and got the children to cut them up and add in a subordinate clause on a coloured piece of paper.

Year 4 SPAG test- End of Term

Year 4 SPAG test- End of Term

This resource was put together as a test for my year 4 class at the end of the year to check their knowledge of SPAG. I have attached the SPAG curriculum to ensure that I have included lots of different areas of this subject.Children are tested on:* their knowledge of punctuation (commas, question marks, speech marks and apostrophes plural and possessive).* their knowledge of SPAG terminology (main/subordinate clause, frontal adverbial, determiner, adverb, suffix, preposition, contractions).This test gave me a great insight into the progress they've made, but also which areas that they are still not so sure on.Please leave a review and check out some of my other resources: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Morrisr9
