Connectives1

why are they so important?

Connectives are words or phrases that tie one thought to another. Using them effectively shows a clear understanding of what is being said and how ideas develop.

Connectives:


Joining parts of a sentence

Connectives of reason:

He was hungry because he had not eaten lunch.

Richard left late so he missed the bus.

Connectives of time:

Craig watched Eastendersbefore doing his work.

Until it was time for bed, Kerry did the ironing.

Connectives of place:

Wherever he goes, Dave watches out for traffic.

The dog could be found hiding under the table.

Joining parts of a sentence


Joining parts of a paragraph

Key messages

Connectives are really important in showing extended knowledge and can be utilised in all subjects.

We must be constantly encouraging students to use connectives in both their written and oral communication.

Students are given targets that are relevant in helping to develop their skills. We all have a responsibility to help the students meet these targets.
