Year 3 Conjunctions!

Using conjunctions to add information about time, place and cause

Today, in our Year 3 online learning, we revised verbs and pronouns and learnt to identify a clause. Next, we used conjunctions to join clauses and extend sentences to give more information about time, place and cause.

Using the unusual picture of a rhino on a roof we came up with some sentences of our own. Bonus points for strong verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

Here’s mine to get the ball rolling….

The worried rhino quivered as the planks wobbled under his weight!

Although the rhino was anxious, he took a nervous step forwards.

Notice, I have used the conjunction at the start of the sentence to join the clauses.

Right Year 3…it’s over to you…

  4. The big grey rino wobbled on the brown thin planks he was so terrified but he didn’t want to for his heart as he almost had a heart atak.

    • Well done Marcel. remember our ‘show-not-tell’ techniques. Rather than saying he felt he almost had a heart attack, maybe say his heart thudded loudly in his chest! 🙂
