Fronted Adverbials

An adverbial is a word or phrase that adds more information to a verb.

Top tip!

Adverbials are used to explain how where or when something happened.

A fronted adverbial is when the adverbial phrase is at the front (or start) of the sentence, before the verb.

For example: Earlier today, Ian ate a banana.

Watch the video clip.

Top tip!

Choose something you saw in the video and then think of a fronted  adverbial to describe the action you saw.

For example: The plants grew + Quickly = Quickly, the plants grew when the heat of the sun shone down onto the soil to warm it up.
