Robin Class Blogging Challenge

In our English lessons this week, we have been writing questions to ask a character. We have discussed what we need to include in a good question, including question words, capital letters and question marks.

On Friday, Dr Proctor sent Charles Dickens from the past to meet us and help us practice asking some of the questions that we have written. Your challenge is to comment on this blog post and write a question that you might want to ask Charles Dickens. Remember to include your punctuation and exciting question words. You might even try to include a conjunction to extend your sentences.

Good Luck!
