Sentence Level Home Learning 2.12.10

Due 7.12.10 

Commas for clauses.         

                                                         

 

Look at this sentence:

The policeman, who had been running for 5 minutes, had to take a rest.

In this sentence two commas have been used to add a clause. A clause is an extra piece of information. The sentence could have said:

The policeman had to take a rest.

But a clause makes the sentence more detailed.

 

A:- Now you try. Copy the sentences into your book and then work out where the commas need to go.

 

1.     The little girl who was wearing a red dress got up and left the room.

2.     The cricketer who was wearing his new helmet was ready to go out to bat.

3.     Everybody including the people wearing blue should leave through the red door.

4.     My pizza which had tomato and cheese on it was the best I’ve ever tasted.

5.     The oldest boy in school who happened to be the smartest won the monthly cup.

6.     That old, grey chair which has been sitting here all the time had the wining ticket on.

 

B: Now you have a go at adding some extra information. Remember to use your commas.

 

Example: The lion was asleep by the tree.

The lion, which was golden brown, was asleep by the tree.

 

(1)  The hippo was lying in the river.

(2)  The zebra was grazing in the field.

(3)  The hyena was lazing on the rock.

(4) The giraffe was munching leaves.

(5)  The rhino was charging at the car.

(6)  The snakes were crawling up the tree.

(7) The monkey was eating a banana.

(8) The parrot was sitting on the branch.

(9)  The tiger was prowling in the jungle.

(10) The deer was prancing through the forest.
