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.

Complex Sentences

Complex Sentences

This resource recaps simple and compound sentences (see other resource) and clearly shows how to form complex sentences, using commas to connect independent and dependent clauses. With examples, differentiated grids and AFL hinge questions, this lesson will introduce KS3 or KS4 classes to the 'nitty gritty' details of complex sentences and how they differ from simple and compound. Resources are differentiated (extenders - lower, developers - middle, connectors - high) as directed in the notes section. Enjoy!

Simple and Compound sentences

Simple and Compound sentences

This was produced as a refresher on sentence types for KS3, but can be used with a range of abilities. This is the prequel to the complex sentence lesson I have, so that students can build on these types to create longer, complex sentences. With engaging pictures, differentiation and a range of tasks, this lesson will consolidate simple and compound sentences for students.
