Levelling writing - can anyone interpret this statement?

    Hiya, am just levelling some work against the new levelling proforma that we are using. Under 2b, one of the statements in 'Begins to use subordination to show time and reason'. What does this mean - I am brain dead! (or hungover..) thanks x

    I mean is, and not in! Note to self - lay off the wine! :)
  3. I assume this meand that a child will use a subordinate clause in the occasional sentence.

    To show reason:
    Mum went to the shops because she needed some milk.

    I think it means showing a sense of time in a subordinate clause usually at the beginning of a sentence.
    eg. After she had drunk all the wine, Fenella had a massive hangover.
    Or Whilst shopping last Monday, Fenella bought eight bottles of wine.
    or if you're year 2, 'Later, she walked across the road into the park.'
    Hope this helps xx
