Well done for trying this. The word 'and' goes between the two objects. We can use 'and' when we are listing more than one thing.

Join them together using 'and'.

 

ball beach
ball beach
CORRECT ANSWER
Ball and beach

EDDIE SAYS
Fantastic effort. Did you remember that 'and' goes after you have written the first object? Try the next question.

carrots peas

Carrots and peas
Peas and carrots

It doesn't matter which way round the objects. The word 'and' must go in between each one. Keep going super star!

Join them together to make a long sentence. 

 

Dog cat
The dog is sitting. The cat is sitting.
CORRECT ANSWER
The dog is sitting and the cat is sitting.
The cat is sitting and the dog is sitting.
EDDIE SAYS
Good effort! You can use the word 'and' to connect the two sentences together. It doesn't matter which sentence comes first. Remember you only need one capital letter to start your sentence and one full stop to finish.
  • Question 5

Join these clauses together to make a long sentence.

cat drinking milk

 

cat in a box

 

This cat likes to drink milk.

This cat likes to hide.

CORRECT ANSWER
This cat likes to drink milk and this cat likes to hide.
This cat likes to hide and this cat likes to drink milk.
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 6

Join these clauses together to make a long sentence.

Little boys riding bikes

Little boy with a sad face

 

We are happy on our bikes.

He is sad.

CORRECT ANSWER
We are happy on our bikes and he is sad.
He is sad and we are happy on our bikes.
EDDIE SAYS
Well done for having a try. Remember 'and' goes after the first 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.
  • Question 7

Join these clauses together to make a long sentence.

pink ruler

pencil case with pencils

I have a pink ruler. My friend has a pencil case.
CORRECT ANSWER
I have a pink ruler and my friend has a pencil case.

EDDIE SAYS
'And' is a connective. It is used to join two sentences together. Remember you only need one capital letter to start your sentence and one full stop to finish. Fantastic effort!
  • Question 8

Now look at these three clauses.

Join them together to make a very long sentence!

yellow scarf purple hat red gloves
I have a yellow scarf. I have a purple hat. I have two woolly gloves.
CORRECT ANSWER
I have a yellow scarf and I have a purple hat and I have two woolly gloves.
I have a yellow scarf and I have two woolly gloves and I have a purple hat.
I have a purple hat and I have a yellow scarf and I have two woolly gloves.
I have a purple hat and I have two woolly gloves and I have a yellow scarf.
I have two woolly gloves and I have a purple hat and I have a yellow scarf.
I have two woolly gloves and I have a yellow scarf and I have a purple hat.
EDDIE SAYS
This could be a bit tricky! But don't worry it works in the same way. The word 'and' is used to connect all the clauses together to make one big sentence. To do this we need to use more than one 'and'. Remember you still only need to use one capital letter at the start and make sure you have used a full stop to show your sentences has finished.
  • Question 9

Now look at these three clauses.

Join them together to make a really long sentence!

Kite Girl with skateboard children playing ball
I like to fly my kite. She loves to skate. They enjoy playing with a ball.

I like to fly my kite and they enjoy playing with a ball and she loves to skate.
She loves to skate and they enjoy playing with a ball and I like to fly my kite.
She loves to skate and I like to play my kite and they enjoy playing with a ball.
They enjoy playing with a ball and she loves to skate and I like to fly my kite.
They enjoy playing with a ball and I like to fly my kite and she loves to skate.
EDDIE SAYS
Super effort! How did you get on this time? Remember it doesn't matter which order you put the clauses in. You must use 'and' to connect each clause to each other. You only use a capital letter at the start of the sentence. We shouldn't see any capital letters in the middle of the sentence. Try the next question.
  • Question 10

Now look at these three clauses.

Join them together to make a super long sentence!
