Punctuation includes Commas, Full stops, Question marks, Apostrophes, Brackets , capital letters and exclamation marks.
This is what they look like!
Here is a fantastic book all about commas and how it makes such a difference.
It is called…
Commas can be very useful sometimes.They can change a meaning of a sentence. For example:
- “Go, get him doctors.”
- “Go get him, doctors. “
- “After we left grandma, Mummy and I walked around in the park.”
- “After we left, Grandma, mummy and I went walking around in the park.”
Talking marks/Quotation marks
Talking marks/Quotation marks are used when a person is talking, For example:
- “Hello, how are you?
- “What do you want to play?”
- “Hi, are you new here?”
- “What is 6+4,?”asked Peter
Full stops are used when a sentence is finished.
- Sally is very tired today.
- Robbie has a broken leg.
- I have a sore throat.
- Sometimes I forget my full stops.
Question marks are used when someone is asking a question. See examples below.
There can also be rhetorical questions, which are questions that don’t get answered.
- What are you doing today Mike?
- Hey, how are you?
- Can you say that again?
- What are your favourite books?
Exclamation marks are most often used to indicate surprise or excitement in the text.
- I haven’t seen you here in absolutely ages!
- I wasn’t expecting that!
- I going on a holiday!

If I was 18 and I had to go to a different country I would go to either Canada, Indonesia or perhaps visit an aboriginal tribe.
I would have to bring my passport with me.
I would pack:
- a hoodie
- tracksuit pants
- rain coat
- hiking boots
We will go to Canada for 1 month to visit my friends. Indonesia for 1 month and go to an aboriginal tribe for a month.
What I would do in Canada, Indonesia and the tribe:
- See my friends
- Find new facts
- Be more aware
- Take lots of photographs
- Look at the different landscapes
- Learn more about those particular people
- Visit significant things/landmarks
- Visit the main and unpopular cities
Thank-you for reading this post.

Today my class had to make their own board games with literacy, maths and justice included in the task.
We had a great time and we learned a lot of facts.
What You Would Need To Play My Game:
- Base ( Board )
- Fact Sheet
- Permanent Marker
This is my board game 🙂
- You all roll the dice and the person with the lowest number goes first and so on
- At least 2 players but the max is 4 people
- Roll the dice and move how many spaces you get on the dice
- The dealer gets the card that you land on
- The dealer will ask the question and you will find the answer on the fact sheet
- you say the answer to the dealer and see if you’re right
- if you get the answer wrong you go back 3 spaces
- If you land on a blank you stay there
Grandma Mary – A very well thought out game. Very enjoyable to play and answers were interesting to say the least . I’ll look forward to playing this new game with my other grandchildren next time I’m in Germany.
Thank you to all the people who made this happen 🙂
