Noughts and crosses – subordinating conjunction style


Today we played a great game in pairs. We were given a a noughts-and-crosses grid of subordinating conjunctions and some entertaining pictures. We then selected a conjunction and created a complex sentence using that subordinating conjunction to describe the picture in some way. 

The first child to achieve a diagonal, horizontal or vertical row of correctly structured sentences won the game. It was a great way of building our confidence while being an entertaining challenge!


Here is an example for the mouse picture below:“Although the mouse put on a crash hat when approaching the cheese in the trap, it was still hurt because the hat was faulty.”
