  • Hi, this doesn't seem to want to  download.  Just says it isn't recognised as a ppt file. Have tried on two colleagues laptops too, still no joy.

    • Hi annemichelle.lewis,
      Thanks for letting us know that there are issues downloading this resource. I'm sorry to hear this but would love to help.
      I've taken a look at and it appears to download properly for me here. Our hHelp Centre should provide a solution but I will also send a copy of the resource through to you. If you're still having trouble, let me know and I'll have another look at this right away!
      Have a lovely day! :)

  • The exclamation sentence shown is not really an exclamation sentence under the current DfE rules. An example like "How exciting the zoo is!" or "What fun the zoo was!" would work, but the current example is a statement with an interjection added on the front!

  • Thank you for this resource. Where would I be able to find the alternate version that is mentioned with the NC expectations (Exclamations starting with "what" or "how" and is a full sentence with a verb)
    Thank you

    • Hi acceb1210,
      It looks like the main resource has been updated with an example of an exclamation sentence. However, I have requested that our design team add the updated definition for extra clarity.

      Have a lovely day! :)

  • Thank you! A simple but good introduction to different types of sentences.
    I take on board the comments below.........

  • Good idea, but the slide on exclamations doesn't fit with the national curriculum. The government have decided that they are only classing a sentence as an exclamation if it starts with "what" or "how" and is a full sentence with a verb. So "oh my goodness!" wouldn't be classed as an exclamatory sentence. You also wouldn't be allowed to have "What a horrible day!" or "How terrible!" because they don't have a verb in them, it would have to be "What a horrible day it was!" or "How terrible this is!". Basically you have to imagine that you are talking like Yoda, or that you're in an Enid Blyton novel. It's ridiculous, but that's what they've (incorrectly) decided to class as an exclamation :(

    • Was about to add this comment myself. It's ridiculous how KS1 are expected to write an exclamation sentence!
      Loved the comment about Yoda/ Enid Blyton :-)

  • A simple power point to intro all four types of sentences. Great for SPAG

  • A good resource for introducing the four types of sentences. I would get the children to then think of and write their own sentences.

This useful powerpoint features lots of information about different types of sentences. Can your children tell the difference between a statement, command, questions and exclamation?
