Year 3- Using inverted commas correctly.

Hi Year 3,
You have been learning how to use inverted commas this week to state what a character is saying.

Rules of speech
1- Only place inverted commas around what is being SAID.
2- Begin speech with a capital letter.
3- At the end of the speech use a punctuation mark before closing the inverted commas.
4- Always state WHO is speaking- this should NOT be inside the inverted commas.

Retell the story of the Three billy goats gruff ensuring you use a balance of narrative and dialogue. I will be looking for inverted commas being used correctly.

    “It’s our only choice,we stay here and starve or go to the other side and eat green crunchy grass. Which one?”Answered the big strong billy goat, as he looked through the binoculars.So the tiny billy goat ran across the wooden bridge and was as silent as a mouse.But then a big ugly creature jumped up on the rickety,red bridge and roared”Who’s that trip-trapping on my bridge!”
