Colons Challenge

This week, we have learnt how to use colons correctly to punctuate sentences. 

Key Learning Points:

  • Colons can introduce a list.
  • There needs to be a main clause before the colon.
  • Colons can introduce an explanation.
  • Colons can replace the word 'because'.
  • Colons can introduce a 'reveal'.
