Lesson 1

LI: To use fronted adverbials


Fronted adverbials are adverbials which are at the beginning of a sentence. They are always followed by a comma.

Hastily, Tom ran to see his best friend before he left for home.

Hastily is the fronted adverbial.



Sometimes adverbials are in the middle of a sentence. When we alter the sentence to have the adverbial at the front, we will still have the same meaning but it is an advanced method of writing.


Now try the questions in your pack. Have fun!


Lesson 2

LI: To identify grammar and punctuation errors in a paragraph.


Using your knowledge of how we should use grammar and punctuation, complete the worksheet in your pack named 'Confusing Sentences'.


Think about:

  • capital letters and full stops
  • how we should write names
  • commas
  • speech


Good Luck!
