Friday 15th May

Last Friday we started looking at using brackets, dashes and commas for parenthesis. We are continuing with this learning today. 


When writing, you can add parenthesis to the middle of a sentence to add extra information. It could be a word, phrase or a clause that you add.

Children, you will probably remember us talking about embedded clauses in sentences or embedded relative clauses if they begin with a relative pronoun such as who or which. If not, I think you will have your memory triggered in today's activity. 

Try these parenthesis challenges. There is a set for today.
