Today we are going to look at question marks.  These are always found at the end of a sentence that is a question. We can tell if it is a question, as it is asking for information about something. Questions often start with the words who, where, when, why, what, which or how.

Watch BBC Bitesize for more information about this.

Look at the sentences on the link opposite and decide whether they are sentences which need a full stop on the end or questions which need a question mark on the end. Put the correct punctuation mark at the end.


We are going to continue to look at questions today. Can you remember any of the words that questions start with? Look at the sheet (link opposite) and decide which word should go at the start of the question. Remember to put a question mark at the end of each question.


Start by having a look at your spelling today and write them out to help you learn them. Make sure that you know the meaning of each word (if you don’t, ask an adult or ask us on Teams). You will be doing the test on Friday. (see under Friday's links)


You should now know how to use capital letters, full stops and question marks correctly (you looked at full stops and capital letters last week).

Look at the sheet, see if you can spot the mistakes and rewrite the sentences correctly. Remember to think about whether you need to add a full stop, capital letter or a question mark (you may need to add two of the to some of the sentences).

At the end of the sheet, you need to write a sentence and a question – think about what you need to put at the end of each one.


Look at the poster on the link to remind yourself about some of the words that questions begin with.

Think of one person that you would like to find out more information about (it could be a friend, family member, singer, famous person etc).  Write down questions that  you could ask them to find out  more about them.  For example, you may want to ask about their name, age, address or favourite food. Don’t worry, you are not actually going to ask them these questions, you are just practicing thinking of questions.

How many of the words on the poster can you use in your questions? Remember to use a question mark at the end of each question.


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

Write each word in a sentence and if you can, tyr to make some of them into questions. Don’t forget to add the ?
