Plazoom’s Year 6 SPaG Revision Blaster packs are the perfect way to check children’s knowledge and understanding of the KS2 programme of study for English. The area of grammar, punctuation and spelling covered in this SPaG revision blaster is the KS2 punctuation - direct speech.

The packs are based around the content domains of the Key Stage 2 grammar, punctuation and spelling test framework. ‘Let’s Recap!’ provides information to revise or reteach an area of grammar, punctuation or spelling covered in Paper 1 of the GPS test followed by ‘Let’s Practise!’ with SATs style questions for the pupils to complete independently or as a class. Three sheets are provided, Revision Blaster 1, 2 and 3. These increase in difficulty, with questions having a greater cognitive load on Revision Blaster 3.

A PowerPoint version of the pack is included, so it can be worked through in groups, or as a whole class.

How do we punctuate direct speech?

Inverted commas, or speech marks, are used when writing direct speech. The inverted commas go around what is said within a sentence.
Other speech punctuation is also needed. Punctuation is needed at the end of the direct speech before the inverted comma and a comma is used after the reporting clause if this comes before the direct speech.

Content domains from Key stage 2 grammar, punctuation and spelling test framework (2016)

G5.7 direct speech, inverted commas (or ‘speech marks’) inverted commas and other punctuation to indicate direct speech, (e.g. a comma after the reporting clause and end punctuation within inverted commas).
