English WB 18.4.16
Wednesday 13th April | 1 comment
During the first week, the children will be revising two different pieces of punctuation (commas and parenthesis).
Commas can be used for the following:
- in a list
- after a fronted adverbial
- in a complex sentence, where the subordinate clause comes first
- a pair of commas for a relative clause (who, which, when, whose)
Parenthesis can be used for the following:
- add additional information
- clarify the meaning of something
NB – parenthesis can use () – or ,
- Children are going to analyse a piece of writing and identify where commas and parenthesis should be placed.
- Draft a short plan that includes specific use of commas and parenthesis for each of the purposes.
- Write a recount about a day/ couple of days in their holidays that demonstrates these punctuation skills and language for affect.
