Complex sentences

We have been looking at complex sentences in class. A complex sentence is a sentence that has a dependent clause as well as a main clause. A main clause on its own is called a simple sentence.

 

We were given the following simple sentences based on the image below and I have turned them into complex sentences (with the dependent clause in italics .)
