English KS1 / KS2: Where do we put capital letters?

They are asked 3 different multiple choice questions testing accurate use of the capital letter (pronoun I, at the beginning of the sentence).

In the multiple choice, all options are clearly read and the presenter involves the audience at home by inviting us to play along too.

In between each round the presenter and the puppet discuss why the correct answer is accurate and provide clear explanations and examples to consolidate learning.

This clip is from the series Punctuation Pals.
