Look at the following words containing ‘ance’ and decide which ones go in the sentences below.
In these pairs of homophones, the nouns end -ce and the verbs end -se. Can you use the correct homophone to complete these sentences?
When a verb ends in -fer, if you want to add the suffixes -ing or -ed to it, you need to add another r at the end. If the word is turned to a noun with the ending -ence, the r is not doubled. Now see if you know what all the words in the left-hand column mean. Can you write a sentence containing the red words?
We use semi-colons in a list when the items in the list are described by phrases. Can you correctly place the semi-colons in these lists?
We can use a semi-colon to separate two clauses if they are in some way related to each other and if both clauses could make sense on their own. If one part of the sentence doesn’t make sense on its own, use a comma. Tick and cross these sentences to show if the correct punctuation has been used.
