Year Six
1. Please learn by heart the words to our semi-colon song:

There was a semicolon: a comma and a dot;
he separated clauses that were independent thoughts.
An independent clause is one completed thought,
and two are separated with a comma and a dot.

Example one:
Ron hit John in the face; (semicolon)
consequently, John's face is blue and swollen.
Are you gettin' a clue?
Well, here's example two:
Ron says basketball is his favourite sport;
amazingly, he's really good for being so short.

Between the two clauses, in case you forgot,
is Mr. Semicolon; yep, a comma and a dot.
Mr. Semicolon is also used between
a bunch of items listed that have commas in those things.

We're going to record this as a video later in the week! Listen to our class audioboo:

2. Please learn the 'words that begin with 'sus' spellings for our test next Tuesday!

P.S. Listen to a funky Nigerian semi-colon song here.
