Semi-Colons

This week we are going to revisit semi-colons and how to use them correctly in writing. 

A semi-colon is punctuation which is used when connecting two sentences or independent clauses. 

Have a look at the different links and work through the questions if you can...

BBC Bitesize have released a set of videos and activities focusing on semi-colons, check out the link below!

Semi-Colon Challenge!

1) How Many Places Challenge

Have a look through a book, or text from the internet, and see how many times semi-colons appear in the text. Can you find any presented elsewhere? Try searching in magazines and look on TV adverts. 

 

2) Show your understanding of what semi-colons are and how to use them

How are semi-colons used correctly? Create a poster, a Powerpoint presentation or even film yourself to show your understanding of what a semi-colon is and how they are used. Be as creative as possible! 

 

We would love to see your understanding of prepositions - you can email them to y6@greenhill.leeds.sch.uk so we can take a look and upload some to the website!
