  • My son is attempting the HAP worksheet and has used 'provided' as a verb not a conjunction. Please could I suggest that in the box of conjunctions to be used, instead of 'provided', you write 'provided that'. It would make it much clearer especially as 'provided that' is quite old fashioned and barely used in modern parlance. Many thanks, Homeschool Mum.

    • Hi UmmAbdoulKarim,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :)

      This is a differentiated resource aimed at LKS2, so it would be suitable for a range of pupils from Year 2 and into UKS2. We suggest that you use your knowledge of your class to determine which activity is most appropriate for your pupils :)

  • Great resource, however there is an error with the example given on the worksheet: if the subordinating conjunction comes in the middle or at the end of the sentence – no comma is required.

  • EALD students often write as they speak. My students are now at the stage where they need to "stretch" their sentences to make their written (and oral) language more powerful. So, these worksheets will act as a great reminder for them. (Thank you.)

  • I have a student in mind who has auditory processing issues. One of the areas he needs work in is creating complex sentences. This should be a great way to get him working at a Year 4 level.
