Y5 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Relative Clauses Lesson

This lesson covers the prior learning of using pronouns to avoid repetition before moving onto the main skill of using relative clauses to build cohesion in writing.

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.

National Curriculum Objective:
English Year 5: (5G3.1a) Using relative clauses beginning with who, which, where, when, whose, that or with an implied (ie omitted) relative pronoun
