A conjunction is a joining word.  We use it to join two sentences together to make one long sentence.

e.g.  I went to the shop.  I bought a comic.

        I went to the shop and bought a comic.

And is a conjunction.

e.g.  Gran is old.  Leanne is young.

        Gran is old but Leanne is young.

But is a conjunction.
