Chestnut Homework – Friday 28th November 2014

Chestnut English Homework Friday 28th November, due in Wednesday 3rd December

In English this week we have been learning about speech punctuation. For homework you need to write a silent conversation with a member of your family.

Remember the speech punctuation rules:

  • Speech marks hug the words being spoken.
  • Include a comma, question mark or exclamation mark between the spoken words and the reporting clause.
  • Use a new line for each new speaker.
  • Start each new speaker’s words with a capital letter.
