Year Six Prose: Introducing Reported Speech
Watch the video above for an introduction to reported speech.
Reported speech is a little tool that can spice up a dialogue - and the Grumpy Examiner loves it! Remember, the more little tricks you throw into your story, the more you will impress your readers!
Task: Please write a dialogue - a conversation - between a chef and an angry customer about a bad meal. Write 1/2 page of A4.
Your challenge? Include some reported speech. (Don't make it all reported speech - include two or three examples over the half page.)
Feeling clever? Try setting out the dialogue in different ways, e.g.
Bob frowned: "You call that soup?"
