LEARNING to make a difference

Week 1

Year 3 English

I will post the answers on the school website next week for you to check your work.

Task One

 Copy these sentences into your book and put the speech marks in the correct places. Remember: The speech marks go around what is being said. Copy all the other punctuation correctly.

1. Hello, said the man.

 2. What are you doing? said Fred.

 3. Stop! shouted the policeman.

 4. Wait a minute, said Mark. Don’t I know you from somewhere?

 5. I know what we’ll do, said Lucy. We’ll go to the pictures.

 

Task Two

Put the speech marks in the correct places once again. This time, however, you will also need to add all the other punctuation that is needed as well. Watch out for any questions or exclamations.

1. Hello said Greg

 2. You look tired said Martin

3. Can I come in asked the man

 4. No screamed the man

5. Come here said Grandma I want to see how much you have grown

6. Is that my bag asked Daniel I thought I’d lost it

7. Run shouted Sally The dog is after us

8. I know what I want for my birthday said Tina A brand new car

 

 

 

 

Task Three

How many other words can you think of that you could use instead of the word said. Write down at least eight other words for said. For each of the eight words that you came up with in task three write a sentence with speech in that uses that word.

 

Task Four

 

Read through the following passage and re-write it using speech marks and synonyms for said. You’ll probably need to read through the passage several time to work out what each character is saying.

 

 Excuse me, said the man. Can you tell me what the time is? I think it’s about 8 o’clock, replied Graham. I haven’t got my watch on but I remember seeing the time on the town hall clock a few minutes ago. The town hall! said the man. That’s just what I’m looking for. Can you point me in the right direction? Certainly, said Graham. You just go down there past the bank, turn left, go straight on and the town hall will be on your right hand side. Brilliant, said the man, Thanks for your help. That’s okay, said Graham.

Write a story about this picture.

You must include:

Inverted commas, synonyms for said, adjectives, and verbs.
