  • Useful resource but 'badger sett' not 'badger set', and a comma is in the incorrect position in 1a on the activity sheet. I only noticed once it was in the children's books.

  • Great resource using it with my Year 6 English group - one of them has just noticed that a has been used twice in question 3b in the dashes section.  Thank you

  • Fab, one off lesson supporting Year 6 SPAG and used in conjunction with colons and semi colons PPT

These differentiated activity sheets help children to practise using semi-colons, colons and dashes in different types of sentences. They identify where the different punctuation should be used in given sentences and have a go at writing their own sentences using semi-colons, colons and dashes too.
