Connectives / Conjunctions 02

This KS2 English quiz takes a second look at connectives and conjunctions. Connectives and conjunctions are used for linking ideas together. When teachers talk about connectives, they usually mean conjunctions and connectives. This is because of the job these words do - they 'connect' ideas within and between sentences.

The actual words, connectives and conjunctions, might seem a little daunting to you, but once you get the hang of them, they are easy to understand.

See if you know how these words work by trying this second English quiz on connectives and conjunctions.
