I hope you have all had a great weekend and managed to get some rest and lots of fresh air. Remember to just do the work you can. If you would like to email me some of the work you have done, I'd be very pleased to see it: senco@allsaints-pri.leeds.sch.uk


This week in Literacy we will be learning about direct speech. Direct speech is something that someone says. We have learnt about it before and we called it dialogue. In this week's work, you will be asked to identify and use direct speech. Direct speech has inverted commas around it to show those are the words someone says. For example:


"Lets have a race," said Emily.


Notice how the word race has a comma after it, before the inverted commas to end the speech? This is to show expression. It can be replaced with an exclamation mark (!) or a question mark (?). A full stop only comes at the end of the whole sentence.


You might also see direct speech written like this:


Emily said, "Lets have a race." 


In this example, the words Emily said are at the start. This means that the end of the sentence is after the word race, which is why there is a full stop before the final inverted commas.
