Today we will be learning about conjunctions. 

Conjunctions are joining words. 

There are two different kinds of conjunctions.

Subordinating and co-ordinating. 

Subordinating are used to add on an additional piece of information (like a fronted adverbial or embedded clause). The added information does not make sense on it's own.

  • What tools do you normally use?
  • Why is it important to have lots of tools? 

Here are some ideas:
