What is a...?

NOUN

A word used to identify a person, place or thing (PPT)

For example... 

A name -Miss Taylor

A place - School

A thing - Cheese 

 

PRONOUN

A pronoun takes the place of a noun in a sentence. It helps to avoid repetition.

For example, instead of saying...

Miss Taylor drives to school. Miss Taylor says good morning to Mrs Weaver and Mrs Hattersley. Mrs Weaver and Mrs Hattersley say hi back.

We can say...

Miss Taylor drives to school. She says good morning to Mrs Weaver and Mrs Hattersley. They say hi back. 

 

RELATIVE PRONOUN 

A relative pronoun is a pronoun which refers to the NOUN previously mentioned. 

They are used at the start of a relative clause.

Here are some relative pronouns-

WHO, WHOSE, THAT, WHICH, WHERE, WHEN

 

RELATIVE CLAUSE

A relative clause is used to add extra information about a noun. They are always introduced by a relative pronoun and are outlined by commas!

For example- 

On Mars, Max works as a policeman, which is extremely hard work, and looks after all of the other workers. 

 

FRONTED ADVERBIAL

A fronted adverbial is when the adverbial word or phrase is moved to the front of the sentence, before the verb. Fronted adverbials are always followed by a comma.

Here are just a few examples:

At 8 o'clock,

Earlier today,

Yesterday,
