L.O: To use inverted commas (speech marks) correctly. 


We have looked at speech marks in class. Remember, they are also called inverted commas and they look like a little 66 and a little 99. 


We use the inverted commas to show that someone is speaking. The inverted commas go around the actual words that someone says. It is called direct speech. 

Here is an example of how we would use inverted commas (speech marks) in a conversation. 


"I'm really hungry," said Charlotte.

"We should buy some cheese," said Tom.

"Why cheese?" said Charlotte?

"So we can make some cheese butties," said Tom. 


Now it's your turn. Put the inverted commas (speech marks) in the correct place in the following speech sentences. The answers are on the following link.
