► ENGLISH - fronted adverbials


An adverb is simply a word that describes a verb (an action or a doing word).

They come before or after a verb.

  • He quickly ate his lunch.

  • He ate his lunch quickly.



Adverbials do the same job as adverbs. They are phrases instead of single words.

He ate his lunch as quick as a flash. - (notice this adverbial phrase is a simile)

They come before or after a verb.

  • As quick as a flash, he ate his lunch.

  • He ate his lunch as quick as a flash.


Fronted Adverbials

Fronted adverbials are adverbs or adverbial phrases that go at the beginning of a sentence and describe the verb (action) that follows.

In the blink of an eye, the storm clouds gathered!

There are different types of fronted adverbial that can be used to change the description of the action in a sentence. These include fronted adverbials of:

  • Time - In the early morning, the storm clouds gathered.
  • Frequency - Every evening, the storm clouds gathered.
  • Place - Above the castle, the storm clouds gathered.
  • Manner - As quick as a flash, the storm clouds gathered.
  • Degree - Terrifyingly, the storm clouds gathered.

Fronted adverbials are followed by a comma.

► TOPIC - more about plants
We learnt yesterday about seed dispersal - that is, how plants send their seeds far and wide.
We created models of helicopter seeds and burr seeds. Thank you for your photos and videos. See some from Jakub, Lois and Lewis below:

We have learnt about how plants reproduce, how they are important as food for animals and how all food chains begin with a plant.

How would the world be different if plants (small or large) disappeared?

Plants are not only important food sources for animals (including humans) they are homes for animals and they produce the air that we breathe. Without plants the World would not survive.
Are plants and trees in danger from humans?

Watch the films below...

So, what could you do in your little bit of the World to help plants and animals?
