Good job! You have taken the time to practise some SATs practice SPAG questions.
This practice SPAG activity will help you to answer questions in SATS Paper 2 about 'conjunctions'.
What is a conjunction?
Think of a conjunction as a joining word that will link different parts of a sentence together.
A conjunction will connect two clauses in a sentence.
Sometimes conjunctions are called connectives, but it is very important that you use conjunction; this is the correct term and the one that shall be used in your SATs test paper.
There are two types of conjunction we need to learn about...
1. Co-ordinating conjunction
A co-ordinating conjunction will be used to link two parts of a sentence that are equally as important.
Here is a sentence with a co-ordinating conjunction:
I am going shopping and I will buy my lunch in the cafe.
2. Subordinating conjunction
A subordinating conjunction has a different job; it will introduce a clause that does not make sense on its own (a subordinate clause).
Here is a sentence with a subordinating conjunction:
I feel so happy whenever you are near!
