Year 6 | Using Semi-colons to Separate Clauses Worksheets

In these Year 6 worksheets focusing on using semi-colons to separate clauses, your pupils will encounter various sentences. Their task is to insert a semi-colon to effectively separate the clauses. Subsequently, they’ll face incomplete sentences containing only the first clauses, followed by semi-colons. The challenge lies in completing these sentences correctly by writing in the second clause, with a reminder that the second clause doesn’t necessarily need to elaborate on the first; it just needs to be related.

This worksheet serves as an introduction to the usage of semi-colons for your pupils. It aids them in recognising that a semi-colon is employed to separate clauses of slightly equal importance. Additionally, your learners will grasp the concept that semi-colons can connect two clauses within a sentence without the need for a conjunction.

Our Year 6 punctuation worksheets are aligned with the KS2 national curriculum and will support your primary learning activities, differentiation, homework and lesson plans.
