English fun with 'direct speech'

Class: Year 4/5: Quartz Year: 2022 - 2023

This week, we had lots of fun reminding ourselves how to punctuate direct speech. We learnt a super catchy song to help us remember; please ask your child if they can sing it to you! Be warned though it is very catchy!! After this, the children tried turning some text messages between Mrs Barrett and Mrs Ward into direct speech. We then created comic strips around a conversation between two soldiers hiding in the Trojan horse. The children acted their comic strips and then turned them into direct speech to prove that they can now punctate direct speech accurately. What a busy but fun week we had in English!!
