LEARNING to make a difference

Thursday 7th January



Main Task


Yesterday, you completed using commas for parenthesis.


Today, I would like you practice using brackets 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:


* Peter (my dad) took me to the park.

* My mobile phone (the white one) is in the drawer.


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