Worksheet Overview

We can use the word ‘and' to join words, sentences and our ideas together. When we start joining our ideas together our writing becomes clearer and we can add more information and make more interesting sentences!


Let’s look at the picture below.

We could say:


The dragon is large. The dragon is powerful.


The castle is magical. The castle sits on the edge of a cliff. 


Or we could join our ideas using and:


The dragon is large and powerful and the castle is magical and sits on the edge of a cliff.


What did you think?


boy with football


We think it sounds better too!


When we use 'and', we can be describing something - adding more information, using adjectives like strong, quiet, slimy or proud, as well as joining ideas together.


Once we know how to describe using ‘and’, we will be able to add more detail to our writing and everyone will want to read what we have written next!


boy writing good idea lightbulb



So what are you waiting for? Let’s learn how to use ‘and’!
