Expanding Sentences Using Conjunctions Lesson

This Expanding Sentences Using Conjunctions lesson covers the prior learning of Coordinating and Subordinating Conjunctions before moving onto the main skill of using conjunctions to expand sentences.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.
