  • Question 1

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

CORRECT ANSWER
I got to school last today.
'I got to school last today.'
"I got to school last today."
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? Remember you can use your phonics to help you spell any words you find tricky. You may wish to put speech marks around these words to show someone is speaking.
  • Question 2

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
Her brother made me laugh.
Her brother made me laugh!
'Her brother made me laugh.'
'Her brother made me laugh!'
"Her brother made me laugh."
"Her brother made me laugh!"
EDDIE SAYS
This can be tricky. But just take it one word at a time. Break down each word to identify the correct phonemes. 'Laugh' is a difficult word to spell. Sometimes coming up with a mnemonic for the word can help; Laugh And You Get Happy. Speech marks will show someone is speaking.
You can also use an exclamation mark to show that the person speaking is laughing.
  • Question 3

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
Have you seen all the people?
'Have you seen all the people?'
"Have you seen all the people?"
EDDIE SAYS
Super effort! This is a question and needs a question mark at the end of the sentence.
Speech marks will show someone is speaking.
  • Question 4

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
I took eleven apples for my friends.
I took eleven apples for my friends!
'I took eleven apples for my friends.'
'I took eleven apples for my friends!'
"I took eleven apples for my friends."
"I took eleven apples for my friends!"
EDDIE SAYS
Speech marks will show someone is speaking.
You may wish to finish this sentence with an exclamation mark as the person speaking is telling you about a lot of apples. Remember to use your phonics to help you spell any words you are unsure of.
  • Question 5

Try this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
Insects with eight legs are called spiders.
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? When writing a sentence you need to use letters to write the number, not figures.
  • Question 6

Try this:

CORRECT ANSWER
Most penguins are found in the Southern Hemisphere.
EDDIE SAYS
Southern Hemisphere is a proper noun as it is the name of a specific area, so it needs to start with capital letters. Keep it up superstar!
  • Question 7

Try this:

CORRECT ANSWER
Instructions are texts that help you to make or do something.
EDDIE SAYS
Don't forget your capital letters and full stops. You can do this!
  • Question 8

CORRECT ANSWER
Monday is the first day of the week and Sunday is the last day of the week.

CORRECT ANSWER
Twenty-three add nine equals thirty-two. This is also twice sixteen.
EDDIE SAYS
Great effort! Did you remember to use letters to write the numbers, not figures?

CORRECT ANSWER
The colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet can all be found in the rainbow.

Amazing effort! You need to use commas when you make a list, in this case a list of colours.
