EDDIE SAYS
Did you remember to put 'and' in between the words? Using the connective 'and' helps to join the words together to start creating a sentence. You can do this! Give the next question a try.
  • Question 5

Now look at these sentences.

Join them together to make a long sentence.

 

Cat drinking milk

Cat in a box

This cat drinks.

This cat hides.

CORRECT ANSWER
This cat drinks and this cat hides.
This cat hides and this cat drinks.
EDDIE SAYS
This is trickier but you can do this! When you join clauses together to make a sentence you need to make sure that you start your sentence with a capital letter and finish with a full stop.
  • Question 6

Now look at these sentences.

Join them together to make a long sentence.

 

We are happy.

He is sad.

CORRECT ANSWER
We are happy and he is sad.
He is sad and we are happy.
EDDIE SAYS
Are you getting the hang of this now? Remember you only need a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop at the end.
  • Question 7

Now look at these sentences.

Join them together to make a long sentence.

 

My ruler is pink. My case is full of pencils.
CORRECT ANSWER
My ruler is pink and my case is full of pencils.
My case is full of pencils and my ruler is pink.
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? We use 'and' as a connective to make two sentences become one sentence. Try to remember you still need a capital letter at the start of the sentence and you must use a full stop to show your sentence has finished.
  • Question 8

Now look at these sentences.

Join them together to make a long sentence.

 

I have a purple hat. I have a yellow scarf.
CORRECT ANSWER
I have a purple hat and I have a yellow scarf.
I have a yellow scarf and I have a purple hat.
EDDIE SAYS
Well done for having a try. Remember 'and' goes after the first part of the sentence, we call this a clause. You do not need to use a full stop until you have written the second clause. Try to remember to use a capital letter at the start of the sentence.
