Scroll down to the bottom of the page and find the punctuation section. Watch the videos and complete the tasks for the following activities:
How to use commas in sentences
How to use brackets
How to use hyphens and dashes
Once you have done, share what you have learnt with the class. Create a sentence showing how to use commas, bracket and dashes in sentences. Here is my example:
The Ragged School, which is where we went for our school trip, has a Victorian school room and kitchen.
Our first activity (and the most enjoyable) was learning all about the sorts of jobs children were required to do around the home during the Victorian era.
Jim Jarvis – exhausted, weak and alone – sat with his arms hugged around his knees in the darkness of the alleyway.
Remember to comment on the sentences that other children post too.
