This ‘Make a Match’ game is a fun way for pupils in Y4 to match sentences that contain the same information written as direct and reported speech.

The game can be played as a class or in small groups and is perfect for adult led interventions to revisit key knowledge and skills.

What is direct speech?

Direct speech writes exactly what a person says, punctuated using inverted commas and other speech punctuation.

For example:
‘Everyone must follow the rules,’ explained Roger.

What is reported speech?

Reported speech states what someone said without necessarily reporting their actual words.

For example:
Roger explained that the rules must be followed by everyone.
