This week we are going to be looking at speech marks. Speech marks are written as “    “ and are used in sentences to show what people are actually saying.

Watch the Youtube clip about this.

Look at the Powerpoint which  will also explain it more.

Write out the sentences and add the speech marks in the correct places. Remember not to put, for example, Philip saidin the speech marks. It is only the actual words the person said that needs to go in them.


When we are using speech bubbles, we don’t need to use speech marks. Look at the examples opposite to see how speech bubbles can be changed into sentences using speech marks.

Then look at the sheet and read the words given in speech bubbles. Change these into sentences using speech marks. Remember, don’t put Bill said or said Bill in to the speech marks.




Begin by looking at your spellings today as you will be tested on them Friday. (see under Friday's links)


Look at the examples of speech bubbles from yesterday and how they only contain the actual words someone has said. Remember, you don’t need to put He said in speech bubbles, and you don’t need to use speech marks either.

Fill in the sheet with the words that you think the animals would say. Keep thi work, as you will be using it again tomorrow.


Use the words in the speech bubbles that you wrote yesterday, and change them into dialogue for the animals using sentences and speech marks (as you did on Tuesday). Remember to start a new line for each speaker.



Ask someone to test you on your spellings  today and let us know how you got on.

Put each word into a sentence, and if you can, try to use speech marks in your sentences.
