Worksheet Overview

Are you ready to become a sentence superstar?

In this activity, we are going to practise recognising different sentence types and use our super skills to change one sentence form to another.


So let’s recap:


Questions  Need an answer, like this: Who did you invite to the party?
Exclamations  Show excitement or emphasis, like this: What a messy kitchen!
Commands  Tell us to do something: Clean your teeth and make your bed.
Statements  Give us information: Chicks and rabbits are born in the spring.

If we want to change the form of the sentence, we need to look at what we have been given and what we want to change it to.

For example, this question: 'Can you pick that plate up?' can be changed into a statement and a command.


purple plates

If we take away the question part ‘can you’ we have the command ‘Pick that plate up.’


Or if we want to write a statement, we can imagine an answer to this question:

I can pick the plate up.’

So by changing the word order and taking away question words or adding them in, we can change the whole form of a sentence!


Now you have the skills, see if you can change some sentences!


Good luck, sentence superstar!
