Learn

Words are grouped together into sentences. When writing, there are a few simple rules you need to follow to make sure your sentences are clear.

  • Firstly, a sentence needs a capital letter at the beginning and a punctuation mark at the end. The punctuation at the end could be a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark.
  • A sentence also needs to contain a verb and it must make complete sense all on its own.
  • Different types of sentence do different jobs. Some state facts, some ask questions, some give orders and some express an emotion.

 

Watch the short video on Bitesize to find out more.

 

How do you punctuate the different types of sentence?

Statements are usually punctuated with a full stop but can also use an exclamation mark.

For example: The cat ran away down the street.

 

Commands can be punctuated with a full stop or an exclamation mark.

For example: Fetch me my cat.

 

A question sentence can only be punctuated with a question mark at the end.

For example: Have you found my cat yet?

 

An exclamation sentence can only be punctuated with an exclamation mark.

For example: What an amazing cat!

Australia is really far away - it's on the opposite side of the Earth to the UK. It is sunny and hot.

Kangaroos, koalas and lots of spiders and snakes live in Australia.

Alice Springs is a town in the centre of Australia, very far from the sea. It is found in an area of Australia called the Northern Territory.

Freya's Uncle Bob is visiting the Northern Territory - it's huge, more than five times bigger than the UK! Watch this animation to find out more.

 

Oceania is a continent which is made up of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and many other smaller islands.

Oceania is home to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world, and home to lots of ocean wildlife.
