Here is a helpful frame to remind you how to put together direct speech. Can you write your own direct speech sentences?
Each player collects parts of sentences as they go round the board then, when you get to the end, see who can write the best story using just the parts you've collected.

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.
Synonyms are words that have a similar meaning. For example: ‘delighted’, ‘ecstatic’ and ‘joyful’ are all synonyms for ‘happy’. Look at the following sentences. Can you replace the green word with its synonym in the box below?

Homonyms are pairs of words that are spelled and pronounced the same way, but have different meanings. Look at these words. Can you work out the two different meanings? If not, look them up in the dictionary. On the next page you’ll need to create TWO crossword puzzles where the homonyms are the answers. Each word will need two different clues, one for each meaning.
The subject of a sentence is the person, place, thing or idea that is doing or being something. The verb that follows the subject changes according to whether the subject is singular or plural. Verbs also change according to whether the sentence is in the present or past tense. Can you complete this table with the correct subjects and verbs?
A main clause is an independent clause that could stand on its own. They are sometimes followed by a subordinate clause that cannot make sense on its own (it is dependent on the main clause). The main clause doesn’t have to come first in the sentence. Can you underline main clauses in red and subordinate clauses in blue?
