Nominal clauses

Nominal clause
This type of clause fills the subject or object slot in a sentence.

Although we do not specifically teach nominal clauses at primary level, it is useful for teachers to be aware of these, since children will use these structures in their writing (particularly in reported speech) and will come across them in texts.
