Year 4 SPAG NCLO: Recognise and use fronted adverbials What is an adverbial? Adverbials provide information about someones action or tell us more about what happened. Adverbials provide information about time, place and manner. In other words, they give us details which relate to when, where and how. Look at the examples in the table below:

Time (When) Place (Where) Last year In the forest In the Inside afternoon Hours later Up the mountain Manner (How)

Slowly Timidly Quietly Adverbials may consist of just one word (an adverb) or more than one word (an adverbial phrase). What is a fronted adverbial? A fronted adverbial is a term used to describe an adverbial that is placed at the beginning of a sentence. When adverbials are placed in this position, they are usually followed by a comma. Moving adverbials to the front of a sentence allows us to create variation in sentence

structure. Look at the following examples:* Before we begin, make sure youve got a pencil. [Without fronting: Make sure youve got a pencil before we begin.] The day after tomorrow, Im visiting my granddad. [Without fronting: Im visiting my granddad the day after tomorrow.] *Examples provided from National Curriculum for English glossary Have a go!
