LO: To use relative pronouns throughout complex sentences.
What is a pronoun?
Repetition is when something that is said or written is used
over and over again, for example:
Gary ate supper when Gary got home. Gary enjoyed his food.
After its first use, instead of repeating 'Gary', we could replace further uses with pronouns to avoid repitition, such as:
Gary ate his supper when he got home. He enjoyed the food.
The NOUNS are in green. The PRONOUNS are in orange.
Gary ate supper when Gary got home. Gary enjoyed the food.Gary ate supper when Gary got home. Gary enjoyed the food.G
Now that we are all caught up on pronouns we can continue with relative pronouns!
For our final task of the day you are going to 'TELL ME MORE' by using a relative pronoun.
Complete these sentences by adding a relative pronoun and telling me a bit more information. For example:
My brother looks just like my dad, whose hair curls the same way.
I have added a relative pronoun after the noun to add information.
1. We moved to Britain in 2007...
2. I go swimming every Saturday...
3. Lunchtime starts at 1pm...
4. I can't eat my sandwich because it's peanut butter...
5. My school is in Manchester...
NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU START YOUR EXTRA INFORMATION WITH A RELATIVE PRONOUN - WHO, THAT, WHOSE, WHICH, WHERE, WHEN.
