How to write a sentence

Sentences

Linking words together in the right way makes your writing easy to understand and interesting to read.

When you are writing, words are grouped together into sentences.

There are a few simple rules you need to follow to make sure your sentences are clear.

Firstly, a sentence needs a capital letter at the beginning and a punctuation mark at the end, like a full stop (.), a question mark (?) or an exclamation mark (!).

A sentence also needs a verb in it and it must make complete sense all on its own.

Different types of sentence do different jobs. Sentences can state a fact, ask a question, give an order or express an emotion.
