Literacy Revision

Here is a list of possible literacy concepts you might be asked about and websites you could use to practise these:

Types of Sentences

A simple sentence consists of one clause that has a subject and a verb. A simple sentence puts across one idea. The owl hooted.

Compound sentences contain two or more pieces of information and the pieces are linked by a connectives. The owl hooted then flew away.

A complex sentence puts across more detailed ideas. It contains one main clause that can make sense on its own and one or more minor clauses that are linked to it. The hungry owl hooted loudly then flew away as it spotted its next meal.
