Tasks for Monday 30th March

English

Today’s focus is on punctuation. Please rewrite the five sentences below adding in the punctuation of capital letters and full stops.

Remember the following:

  • Capital letters: are used for the start of sentences and for proper nouns (i.e names of people and places e.g Great Fire of London, Samuel Pepys)
  • Full stops: are used to show a sentence has ended

 

  1. the fire started in thomas farriner's bakery in pudding lane
  2. lots of people had houses made from wood and straw which burned easily
  3. they pulled down houses to create fire gaps to help stop the fire spreading
