Lesson 13 - To explore compound sentences

In this lesson, we will recap what a simple sentence is and define what a compound sentence is. We will learn what the three coordinating conjunctions are and when to use each one appropriately. We will also practise writing compound sentences using all three coordinating conjunctions. For this lesson, you will need an exercise book or some paper and a pencil.


Extra Challenge Activity

Can you write your own compound sentences using 'but', 'or' or 'and' linked to the opening of 'The BFG'.
