Answer the questions
Today in Grammar, you are learning about direct and indirect speech.
Please click the link to watch a video about direct and indirect speech: https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-are-direct-and-indirect-speech
Direct speech is when we write the actual words that someone has spoken.
Speech marks go at the beginning and the end of the spoken words.
Punctuation at the end of the spoken words goes before the speech marks.
When a different person speaks we begin a new line.
For example: Miss Brown said, “Collect your things and get ready for home time.”
Indirect speech is when we write about what someone has said.
We don’t use the actual spoken words.
We don’t use speech marks.
For example: Miss Brown asked the children to get their things ready for home time.
Please watch the short clip below of me explaining today’s learning. I have also attached a copy of the questions to work through.
Today, you are going to continue with recapping equivalent fractions.
