LO: To recognise and use different conjunctions
Conjunctions are joining words that link together parts of a sentence. The three main coordinating conjunctions are ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘or’.
They can be used to join together two clauses in a sentence. However, the clauses need to make sense on their own. For example:
I had a terrible cold. I still went to work.
You can add the coordinating conjunction ‘but’ in between these causes so the sentence reads:
I had a terrible cold but I still went to school.

A conjunction is a word, or words, used to connect two clauses together. Words such as: 'after', 'because' or 'when' .
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.
"He was annoyed, the train had stopped."
"He was annoyed because the train had stopped."
By adding 'because' we are linking the subordinating clause "the train had stopped" with the main clause "He was annoyed".
