Year 3 Subordinate Clauses: If

Year 3 Subordinate Clauses: If

WOW Lesson

Join English expert, Rachel Clarke, as she shares a lesson on subordinate clauses using the book A Planet Full of Plastic by Neal Layton. In this lesson, you will explore the English objective relating to extending the range of sentences with more than one clause by using a wider range of conjunctions including when, if, because, and although. There will be a specific focus on the conjunction if and using it as a subordinate clause sentence opener. Children will apply their learning to write short poems about the environment.
