Mastery Tasks - Challenge & Stretch

 

English Mastery/Greater Depth Task:

This activity is aimed to stretch your English skills further!

Yesterday we learned what semi-colons are used in writing. Today we will be learning what a regular colon is and how it is used in writing. A colon looks like this :

Do you know what is it used for? Have you ever come across it at all?

Colons often introduce an explanation. The phrase that comes after the colon usually explains or expands on what came before it. It is also used before a listquotationanswer or to provide contrast.

  • 'Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get.' In this example from Forrest Gump, the phrase that follows the colon explains why life is like a box of chocolates.
  • 'I love watching films after school: comedies are my favourite.' The phrase that follows the colon here expands on what the person loves about watching films.
  • 'Tom hated his mum's cooking: soggy sprouts, smelly cabbage and lumpy mashed potatoes.' In this example, a colon is used to introduce a list of things that Tom's mum cooks that he doesn't like. Can you also spot the alliteration?
