Good morning on this slightly wet and overcast Thursday, Primary 3. we hope the change in the weather hasn’t dampened your spirits! Both classes had their Teams chat yesterday and the chats were well attended and it was so lovely to hear your voices and catch up on what you’ve been doing. We very much miss you all and we are looking forward to being able to see you again in school hopefully sometime soon. Thank you again to you all for joining the chat and thank you to your parents for setting it up and for helping you throughout this time!

For your reading for today we are looking at speech. Speech marks tell us when someone is saying something, remember to use punctuation marks too! (, ? ! .) Example : “I love this book,” said Lucy. Put the correct punctuation and speech marks in the correct places in the sentences below, choose your own challenge level. Sentences will also be assignments in Teams:
