In literacy we have been learning about directed and reported speech as a starter before learning about news reports. We have looked at how to change direct speech into reported and reported into directed speech.
Here are some examples of different speeches.
1) ” The costa concordia was tilting to the side unexpectedly!” screamed Amy, a passenger on board.
2) One of the waiters on board the costa concordia has claimned that when the ship started to sink the captain was no were to be seen.
Can you change these sentences into a different type of speech ( for example if sentence one was reported speech turn it into direct speech)?
Can you come up with your own sentences and post them as a comment?
