Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Room 9 Direct Speech


We have all enjoyed being back at school this week. Mr Allen said it was great having everyone back in class.

In literacy this week, we were learning about how to use Direct speech. It was very tricky at first but by the end of the week we all really understood what to do. The first thing that we need to do is separate the talking part and the unspoken part of a sentence, we use a comma to do this. Then we put the inverted commas around the spoken part using marks that we called 66 and 99 because that is what the punctuation marks look like. Instead of writing in our jotters, Mr Allen got us to act out the situation using printed words and punctuation marks. The photographs below shows what we did.


Mr Allen was so impressed with our progress, we got to share our learning with the P3s and P4s during our assembly this week. We also used direct speech in our story writing.
