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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org so we can take a look and upload some to the website!
