Relative grammar

In our English lessons, Year 5 have been learning how to construct sentences that include relative clauses. We wrote simple sentences on strips of paper about Beowulf (our class novel) and then added information about the noun by using a relative pronoun to start a relative clause. Next we added it in the appropriate place within the sentence, making it more complex. This practical activity was a great way of introducing these types of clauses and we are now looking forward to using them in our writing.
