  • Year 5 – Autumn Block 1 – Ready to Write – Fronted Adverbials

    Notes and Guidance:

    • Children should know that a main clause can be expanded by adding an adverbial phrase. They should

    also know that the location of this adverbial phrase can be moved within the sentence.

    • From Year 4, children may know that an adverb can give more detail about a verb, an adjective and even

    other adverbs. They tell us how, when, why, where or how often.

    • Children should know that all fronted adverbials must be followed by a comma even if it is only one word,

    i.e. Yesterday, I went to the shops.

    Focused Questions

    • What is an adverbial phrase? What does it do within a sentence?

    • Identify the fronted adverbial in this sentence. What punctuation mark should be used after it?

    • Change this sentence so that the adverbial phrase becomes a fronted adverbial. What have you had to

    change or add?
