Learning objective: I can use subordinating and coordinating conjunctions in my writing.  


Warm up: write as many pronouns as you can.*



*pronouns are words used to refer to somebody. E.G. I, you, she.  



I have taken some words from the learning objective and put them in bold. Can you think about what these words mean?



 Subordinating conjunctions _______________________________________________

Subordinating conjunctions are used to join a subordinating clause to another clause. Sentences that use subordinating conjunctions don’t make sense on their own. E.G. because the train stopped (it cannot stand alone as a sentence).


Coordinating conjunctions _______________________________________________

Coordinating conjunctions join two sentences together but both sentences need to make sense on their own.  E.G. I like to go to the park and I like to go on the swings (both make sense without the word ‘and’).



In this unit of literacy, you are going to write a fact file on the famous writer William Shakespeare. You will notice similarities between this piece of work and the explanation text you wrote before half term.


In each lesson we will have our success criteria to follow. The success criteria are what I need to see in your work to see what you are learning whilst at home.


Success criteria:

  • Subordinating conjunctions
  • Coordinating conjunctions
  • Subheading written as a question
  • Question mark
  • Proper nouns
  • Technical language
  • Paragraph

Main task: You are going to write subheading written as a question, making sure you use the success criteria to include all of the features. You can use the Power-Point again to give you ideas for this paragraph.  

Here is my example:


What was William Shakespeare famous for?

William Shakespeare is a significant individual because of the plays and poetry he wrote. His work is still read and studied by people alive today. There is a famous theatre named after him in London and his plays are still performed by actors there.
