Swan Class - Colons Part 2

 

Today, we will be pushing on with our learning about colons from last week. We will recap some of what we learned with regards to using them to introduce lists and bullet points and then focus on the way that we use them to give explanations within sentences and join two main clauses together. Work through the tasks on the video to improve your understanding of how to use colons properly in sentences. Tomorrow, we will be looking into the differences between semi-colons and colons. These are often punctuation marks that people muddle up.
