Year 4 Using Speech in Paragraphs Game

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 4 Using Speech in Paragraphs Game includes five questions designed to test pupils’ understanding of using speech in paragraphs. Pupils will sort sentences using direct and indirect speech, identify the first direct speech in a short text, identify when a new paragraph has been started because a new person has started speaking,  identify all indirect speech in a text and match the speech to its description.
