  • Great powerpoint for explaining the uses of exclamation marks (including the governmental decree); however, on the page which compares the use of full stop with use of exclamation mark and it states "compare these sentences", many are not sentences ...sorry!

    • Good afternoon Catlane,
      I apologise if this mistake has caused any problems. I'll let our design team know about it right away and they will get it fixed as soon as they can!

    • Hi there Catlane,
      Thank you for spotting this! Our lovely teacher and design teams have updated this resource and you can now download the new version. I hope you find it useful!

  • The only thing with this is the government has suggested  that primary school children should only use ‘!’ in sentences starting with ‘what’ or ‘how’. They will only get credit for using exclamation marks in this way.

    • Hi Rothesay,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :)
      I've just been chatting to our teacher team who have let me know that 'exclamation sentences' must begin with what/how, but exclamation marks can be used in different ways :) Just let me know if I can help with anything else :)

  • This is a big help in clearing up some confusion in my call over the use of an exclamation mark, and how to write an exclamation sentence. Thank you!

  • Thankyou for making this. In light of the clarification document which the government published yesterday and the interim assessments for end of KS1, we have got to be so tight on what an exclamation sentence is. If they can't demonstrate writing an exclamation sentence then they can't be at expected! (Exclamation mark used for effect not at the end of an exclamation sentence - he he!)

This is a great powerpoint for explaining how to correctly create exclamation sentences. Perfect practice for end of KS1 assessments!
