Year 3 | Main and Subordinate Clauses Worksheets

In these Year 3 worksheets on main and subordinate clauses, your children will find a set of sentences to explore. Their task is to underline the main clause and circle the subordinate clause in each sentence. Afterwards, they will examine an illustration of a dog scratching and craft a sentence about it, incorporating both a main clause and a subordinate clause.

This worksheet serves as an introduction to clauses for your class. It teaches that a main clause makes sense independently, while a subordinate clause provides extra information but doesn’t make sense on its own. The aim is to encourage them to start using clauses in their own sentences and writing.

Our Year 3 grammar worksheets are linked to the KS2 national curriculum and can be used with your ideas for primary learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
