Y4 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Recognising Speech Lesson

This Recognising Speech lesson covers the prior learning of recognising direct speech before moving onto the main skill of recognising direct and indirect speech within a passage of text.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.
