L.C. To understand what co-ordinating conjunctions are and how they are used.


What is a conjunction?


Lets list as many conjunctions as we can remember on the whiteboard.


If a conjunction links two words or phrases together as an equal pair they are called co-ordinating conjunctions.


Example 1

Kal bought a bat and a ball.


Both the bat and the ball in the sentence are equal pair. 


Example 2

Kim is young but she can kick the ball hard.


'but' links two simple sentences as an equal pair. 


There are 7 co-ordinating conjunctions that we can use.

To remember all 7 we use an acronym. This is: FANBOYS

For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So



We are going to use FANBOYS to help us finish these sentences.



By using FANBOYS these sentences would become:


I like tea but I don't like coffee

I enjoy swimming and horse riding

Would you like fish fingers or beans on toast?

I was tired so I went to bed early.


Task 1


Use FANBOYS to help us finish these sentences.


I rode my bike...

Can I have chocolate.. ?

I wanted to go out...

I like English lessons...


Task 2


Create your own sentences whilst using FANBOYS. You should have 7 sentences at the end (one for each letter).
