  • I am a little confused with this resource- isn't an adverbial phrase (an therefore a fronted adverbial) something that answers how, where or when an action is taking place? I feel that many of the examples in here are in fact subordinate clauses, for example the ones that start with subordinating conjunctions like although, because and despite. It is a helpful resource but I have only used the first two slides as they back-up what I have been teaching my Year 4 class - that a fronted adverbial tells us how, where or when an action is taking place.

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Our lovely resource creation team have taken a look at this quiz and believe that it follows the UK national curriculum - the DfE states that a fronted adverbial is something that modifies and adds detail about the action in a main clause, but never mentions the structure of them. I hope this clarifies our thinking!

    • Thanks for this. The more I’ve actualy read about fronted adverbials I’ve seen that’s it’s more of an umbrella term than I thought. Thank you for clarifying - it does help.

We love powerpoints! Great for supporting your teaching on this topic, they can be used as discussion starters and during whole-class teaching. An absolute must!
