LEARNING to make a difference

Wednesday 6th January

Wednesday 6th January 

LO: To know what a relative pronoun is. 

 

There are 6 relative pronouns... Do you know any???

WHO        WHICH         WHOSE         THAT          WHERE          WHEN 

 

Relative pronouns are words like 'who' and 'which'. They are used to join parts of sentences together. 

 

Can you spot the relative pronouns in these sentences? 

1. I saw the boy who took Sam's lunchbox. 

2. Samantha only eats food which is sugar-free. 

3. Miss Taylor saw the dentist who cleaned her teeth. 

 

Relative pronouns are pronouns which refer to the noun mentioned previously.

Do we remember what a noun is? 

A noun is a person, place or a thing. 

 

Now... can you spot the nouns in these sentences? 

1. I saw the boy who took Sam's lunchbox. 

2. Samantha only eats food which is sugar-free. 

3. Miss Taylor saw the dentist who cleaned her teeth. 

 

The relative pronoun always follows a noun. Let's take a look... 

1. I saw the boy who took Sam's lunchbox. 

2. Samantha only eats food which is sugar-free. 

3. Miss Taylor saw the dentist who cleaned her teeth.
