This week in English we are going to be revisiting some of the things we have learnt this year related to SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar).
Today we are going to be focusing on punctuation. We are going to recap:
- where sentences should begin and end
- different types of sentences
- the correct beginnings and endings for different types of sentences
- how to punctuate and demarcate different types of sentences correctly
