This primary resource pack includes:

- Card sort activity
- Teacher’s notes
What is a simple sentence?
A simple sentence is usually short, and requires as a minimum a subject and a main verb. Generally they are expressing one basic idea, and are therefore very easy to understand.
Simple sentence examples
- Dad ate his dinner.
- Mr Ship ran to the shop.
- The tree has long branches.
- The girl played with the ball.
