► ENGLISH - writing direct and indirect speech
Click the link below and do the LEARN section only and then return here.
Let's check we understand...
Direct speech is when the exact words that have been said by a person are written down inside inverted commas.
- Inverted commas (speech marks) go before and after direct speech. They surround what was said by the speaker.
For example: "I'm pleased to have raised so much money," said Captain Tom.
Punctuating Direct Speech
A new speaker needs a new line.
You should use a capital letter at the start of each piece of speech.
Punctuation (question marks, full stops and exclamation marks) go inside the inverted commas.
If the person who is speaking is named before the speech, you must use a comma before the first set of inverted commas.
For example: Captain Tom exclaimed, “Let’s go and do some more laps of the garden!”
Indirect (reported) speech
When indirect speech is used, the writer will share the main points of what someone has said without writing exactly what they said in full.
No speech punctuation (like inverted commas) is used for indirect speech.
- Direct: “I was tired after all that walking,” explained Captain Tom.
Could be written as:
- Indirect: Captain Tom explained he was very tired by the end of his challenge.

- a glass of water (or a bowl)
What to do:
- Float your ice in the water and look closely - icebergs are a real hazard to ships because they are much more massive than they look - most of the size and weight of an iceberg is under water.
- Look at your floating ice - can you see roughly what fraction is above water and what fraction is below?
- Watch some children investigating at home...
