Grammar homework-parenthesis due on 20th October

We have recently been studying parenthesis in class. The children have been learning about three ways of showing parenthesis. we would like the children to complete the following:

Write a definition of what parenthesis is and show the three ways of punctuating it. The children will need to then apply their understanding and add parenthesis to these examples:

  1. The football match went into extra time.
  2. The boy had forgotten his PE kit.
  3. She combed her hair as she gazed into the mirror.
  4. James is an outstanding footballer.
  5. Did you leave your bag in the classroom?
  6. My family are buying a new pet from the pet shop today.
  7. Mathletics is how we do our maths homework.
  8. He grew up in a street in Northampton.
  9. The train pulled away from the station.
  10. Year 6 is when we get to go to a theme park.
