Writing 

Shakespeare: Macbeth - Complex Sentences

Using this lesson, you will learn to use complex sentences. At this point all the children definitely know how to use simple and compound sentences. These are:

A simple sentence is built from the minimum of a subject and a main verb. It can be very short in length but doesn't have to be. There are several reasons for using simple sentences. For example, a series of short simple sentences used together may be used to create tension, as in this extract:

  • 'We rounded the corner. He was there. We stood in awe at the sight.'

Short simple sentences are frequently used to offer facts, so that they are easily understood by a reader. For example:

  • 'Paris is the capital city of France.

A compound sentence generally joins two simple sentences together. You can use words such as 'and', 'or' and 'but' to join the ideas. These are called connectives.

For example:

  • It was cold but we still went to town.
  • It was raining and we stayed indoors.

This makes the two ideas equal in the sentence - if you take away one part of it, you are left with a simple sentence again. These are very common when speaking and they are not difficult to understand.

 

Green and Yellow  and Orange Write the complex sentences as required. 

 Red - Write the complex sentences as required. Look below if you need help.

Blue 

Main clause is the main part of the sentenceThe subordinate clause is the extra information. You join these 2 ideas with a comma. 

  • I went to the shop, while my stomach rumbled

The main clause makes sense on its own: I went to the shop

The subordinate clause does not tell us everything: while my stomach rumbled what? what happened as my stomach rumbled. 

 

Maths - Decimals
