Today we are learning how to divide decimals by 10, 100 and 1000.
Today we are continuing with our newspaper writing skills. We are going to be focusing on quotes. In order for you to use quotes correctly, you need to use speech marks.
We have learned about speech marks recently, try to remember the rules:
1. Open speech with inverted commas: “
2. Write what the person is saying
3. Signal the end of the speech with punctuation: usually it’s a comma but could be ? or ! (depending on what’s been said).
4. Close speech with inverted commas: ” 5. Say who said it. e.g. told, reported, exclaimed, informed, stated, said.
6. End with a full stop
Remember, we don't put a full stop at the end of speech unless it's the end of the sentence. If you still need to write who said it you use a comma instead. Here is an example below:
"This school is so magical," Harry Potter told the Daily Prophet.
Harry Potter told the Daily Prophet, "This school is so magical."
In the first one, I have put a comma before the speech marks instead of a full stop as the sentence is continuing.
