Recognising Fronted Adverbials Lesson

This Recognising Fronted Adverbials 1 lesson covers the prior learning of What is an Adverbial? before moving onto the main skill of recognising fronted adverbials.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. 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.
