Extra tasks durations

Remember to traffic light your work when you finish with how confident you feel and then ask an adult to assess your work or post it in teams for me to look at and traffic light again and see if your assessment matches.



Learning Intention

We learning how to use speech marks appropriately.

Speech marks are punctuation marks that show what somebody has said. They are also called inverted commas, because they are commas that are inverted or reversed to go around the spoken words.

I have uploaded a  powerpoint to our team, files and literacy resources.

Remember speech marks come at the beginning and the end of the words spoken. and they always start with a capital letter.

“My name is John, “ the boy said.

Today I would like you to do the following

Task 1

Can you punctuate the following sentences .

I am really tired today said Jane.

Let’s go outside and play suggested John.

Try to find examples of speech marks in your reading books and write them down.

Task 2

Punctuation always comes before the speech marks close and the full stop comes at the end of the whole sentence.

“Oh wow! What’s that?” asked Jenny.

“Yikes!” shouted Danny.

“It’s really hot today, “ said granny .

I would like you to make up 5 of your own sentences.

It would be great to see your sentences, you could upload them to teams.
