A conjunction is a word that links sentences together. Conjunctions we use all the time include: and, but, or, so, after, because, if, since, until, when. Here is a list of time conjunctions. Can you choose the right one to fit into each of the gaps in the text?

Can you edit these sentences and improve them by matching them to one of the given expanded noun phrases?
Any piece of writing you do can be improved by correcting mistakes, editing and adding lots more information to your first draft. This report about a Year 6 trip is dull! Can you improve it by including some of the following?
This text includes lots of words that could be shortened and replaced with an apostrophe (for example, I have = I’ve). This is called contraction. Circle all the words that could be shortened and write in the contraction.
