    I want to make sure my labelling is accurate!

    (If not I'd like to know where I went wrong - I am aware that there are many different ways of labelling grammar but I am currently sticking with what I've been taught)


    "Are you flying straight back to Manchester?" - Simple interrogative sentence.

    "I am going to watch Milan-Rome in the San Siro on Sunday." - Simple declarative sentence.

    I'm not sure what kind of a clause, 'via Amsterdam' is?! Ahhhh!

    Thank you for your time!

    "Via Amsterdam" is not a clause; it is a prepositional phrase.

    Re: I want to make sure my labelling is accurate!

    If it is on its own, then it would be a sentence fragment.
