Year 5 | Using Dashes for Added Information Worksheets

In these Year 5 worksheets focusing on using dashes for additional information, a series of sentences is provided. Your pupils will identify and mark with a tick those sentences that correctly incorporate dashes. Following that, additional sentences are presented where learners will underline the parentheses. They will then proceed to rewrite these sentences, incorporating dashes around the parentheses.

This worksheet serves as a valuable tool to reinforce the concept that a pair of dashes can effectively introduce parentheses into a sentence. It also aids in imparting the understanding that a parenthesis, whether a word, phrase, or clause, imparts additional information, and that dashes should surround the parenthesis. Additionally, this exercise allows pupils to practice incorporating dashes in their writing, fostering familiarity with this punctuation style.

Our Year 5 punctuation worksheets are aligned with the KS2 national curriculum and will support your primary learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
