Complete Using Subordinating Conjunctions on Bitesize by following this link –

You will find that everything you need to complete the lesson is on this webpage. There will be two videos to watch, information to read and four interactive activities. The tasks are also on this webpage, but they will also be linked and explained below:


Task One – Highlight the subordinating conjunction in each sentence.



Task Two – Complete the ‘Subordinating Conjunction Jigsaws’ activity sheet that is attached below.

Subordinating Conjunction Jigsaw

You need to add a subordinating conjunction to the centre jigsaw piece and then finish the sentence with a clause. For example: I felt sick because I had eaten too much cake.

Either print the sheet off or write out your new, completed sentences on a separate piece of paper.

Top tip – You could use some of these subordinating conjunctions = if, since, as, when, although, while, after, before, until, because.



Task Three – Copy and complete these sentences. This time start each sentence with a subordinating conjunction and follow it with a subordinate clause.

For example: Because he had fallen over, the boy was crying.

Top tip!

  • Think about the jigsaw pieces from the first activity. The middle and last pieces move to the front this time.
  • Read the main clause first because the rest of your sentence needs to link to it.
  • You could use some of these subordinating conjunctions = if, since, as, when, although, while, after, before, until, because
Subordinating conjunction Subordinate clause Main clause
, the dog barked loudly.
, I was eager to wake up today.
, Sarah received a certificate.
, I gulped down the whole cup of water.
, the children played football.



Task Four – Finally, write two complete sentences of your own that start with a subordinating conjunction. For example: Although it was raining, the scenery was beautiful.



Reread Chapter 7 of Animal Boy which is available to read on Purple Mash.

Now that you have finished reading Animal Boy, write a review about the story. This task has been set at a 2do on Purple Mash.


Remember to read your own book everyday (reading helps us develop fantastic language for our own writing!)



These are going to be your spelling words to learn this week:

autograph, autopilot, autobiography, autopsy, automatic, automobile, autofocus, autonomy, autocorrect, autocue

NB: On Friday, test your child on how they have done with learning to spell these words.


Task One – have one last go at practicing your words before you are tested. You could do this by doing Rainbow words or Pyramid words.

Task Two – assess your child on the spelling words for this week. For the spelling test you could read the word, then say the word in a sentence and finally repeat the word one last time.
