WALT make a prediction

 

‘How to Catch a Star’ ends with the the boy finding the starfish and taking it away to be his friend. What do you think happens next? What do the boy and the starfish do together? Perhaps they go to the zoo together, play hide-and-seek or go for a trip in his rocket.

On Purple Mash you have been set a 2Do. Draw and describe four things that the boy and the starfish get up to together. When you press save, your teacher will be able to see your work. 

 

Use the coordinating conjunctions ‘and’ and ‘but’ and the subordinating conjunction ‘because’ in your description.

A subordinating clause is a part of a sentence that adds additional information to the main clause. A subordinating conjunction is simply the word/words that is used to join a subordinating clause to another clause or sentence. There are lots of different subordinating conjunctions and we can use A WHITEBUS to help us remember them.

 

 

Tasks

Complete one of the worksheets. Browse the work and choose the worksheet based on how confident you are feeling about subordinating conjunctions. The more stars there are, the harder the activities will be.
