I would like you to focus on subordinate clauses today.
What is a subordinate clause?
A subordinating clause is part of a sentence that cannot stand alone as a complete sentence but it is linked to the main clause using a subordinating conjunction.
Mum is taking me for a pizza after she picks me up.
The purple is the main clause and the green is the subordinate clause. The subordinating conjunction is - after.
You could put the subordinate clause at the beginning of the sentence.
After she picks me up, mum is taking me for a pizza.
Today I would like you to complete the next set of questions on the Florence Nightingale text. I have attached the text from yesterday, the next page of the text and also a set of new questions. Some questions are about page 3 and a set of questions about the whole text.
I have also added the answers, but do not peep until you have answered the questions yourself!
