How to write a sentence


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.
