Raising attainment through entertainment and learning through laughter.


Full Stops


A full stop lets a reader know when to stop reading and take a short pause, to think about the sentence they've read.

A full stop comes at the end of a sentence.

For example, the man walked across the road.


The dog chased the cat.


The full stop goes at the end of the sentence to show that the sentence has finished.

Remember, a full stop doesn't just go at the end of a line - check it makes sense.
