Learning about speech marks

Tuesday 11 January 2022

We’ve been practising how to use inverted commas (speech marks) in our writing.

Today, we added speech marks into an extract of our class novel: Holes (they’d mysteriously disappeared..!).  This was great practice and helped us to understand that the punctuation belongs inside the ‘mini elevens’ and that each time there is a new speaker, a new line must be started.

Check out this animation – it really helped make us to feel more confident we were putting the inverted commas in the right place.
