Abstract

This paper reports an investigation into the use of subordinate clauses in the writing of a class of 7 to 9 year old children when attempting five different writing tasks. The importance of developing subordination in writing is related to previous research and to evidence from reviews of school inspections. The different patterns of subordination are discussed, between tasks and pupils, and in relation to variation in the writing of individual children when tackling the different tasks. The paper ends by suggesting how similar investigations can assist schools in promoting children’s writing. © 2021 P. Allison et al.
