Year 3 | Inverted Commas and Direct Speech Worksheets

In these Year 3 worksheets on inverted commas and direct speech, your pupils will be presented with text containing dialogue featuring inverted commas and direct speech. Their task involves identifying and underlining the direct speech enclosed within the inverted commas, indicating precisely what is being said. Subsequently, your learners will encounter individual sentences where they need to incorporate inverted commas to denote the direct speech.

This worksheet serves as an effective tool for your class to comprehend that direct speech involves sentences where the precise words spoken by someone are enclosed in inverted commas, also known as speech marks. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for them to recognise that inverted commas are employed to delineate the spoken words by the character, and other punctuation is utilised to help the reader discern when each character initiates and concludes their speech.

Our Year 3 punctuation worksheets are aligned with the KS2 national curriculum and can complement your primary learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
