Working Together for Excellence and Enjoyment


Tuesday 26th January

LF: To write direct speech using the correct punctuation.


Now that you have learnt the rules for punctuating direct speech, I would like you to try punctuating some sentences of your own.  Think of 3 questions that a reporter might ask Tranio and Livia and then write Tranio and Livia's responses.




Reporter: "How did you feel when you woke up and saw the city from the water?"


Tranio and Livia: "We were horrified!  We didn't recognise our beautiful city anymore.  The sky was thick with pumice and black with ash."

You can use the worksheet provided for this lesson or you can write on plain paper.  If you would prefer to write on plain paper, use two different colours to show who is speaking (see my example above).
