LEARNING to make a difference

Friday 8th January

Starter Task



Main Task


Yesterday, you completed using brackets for parenthesis.


Today, I would like you practice using dashes for parenthesis. 


Remember that parenthesis is when you can add a word, phrase or a clause to a sentence to provide more information.

When the extra information is removed, the sentence must still make sense. 


For example:


* Buddy my Golden Retriever loves to play fetch with a ball.

* The shop which was at the end of the cobbled street had a doll in the window.


The dashes need to look like the ones in red above and need to go around the extra information.
