English: Today is your chance to become a reporter!  In a newspaper report, there is always the quotes paragraph, this is where the journalist has gone out and asked people about their experiences of the subject they are writing about.  I would like you to interview family members about what they thought of the lockdown and how they felt about a return to remote learning (obviously we know when we're going to be back in school, so make sure they pretend it's the night of the lockdown announcement!)


Make notes or record in a video your interview. These notes will help you when you write your report.


When you are recording your quotes make sure you punctuate the speech correctly. 


Remind yourself of our rules for punctuating speech, you will need to follow these to include quotes in your newspaper report.

• Each new character's speech starts on a new line.

• Speech is opened with speech marks (inverted commas).

• Each line of speech starts with a capital letter.

• The speech ends with a comma, exclamation mark or question mark before the closing speech marks (inverted commas).

• A reporting clause is used at the end (said Jane, shouted Paul, replied Mum).

• A full stop goes after the reporting clause.


Watch this video to remind yourselves!


I'd also like to see some reported speech, do you remember doing this before half term? If you don't watch this video again to refresh your memory.


Challenge: Now use your interview answers to write out two quotes that you could include in your report, remember to use accurate punctuation.
