Punctuation Show

On Wednesday 18th January 2017 all Y7 pupils were lucky enough to be entertained and educated by Barrie McDermid from ‘The Punctuation Show’.

Barrie specialises in all things literacy! Spelling, punctuation and grammar, however as he says in his own words this isn’t just any lesson, “We put on an amazing show that uses song, dance, and humour to help people remember key literacy skills.”

Each half of the year was treated to two different energetic and hilarious performances. One on ‘Grammar’ and the other on ‘punctuation’, these are key skills that the pupils must remember when learning in any lesson at Hodge Hill College. The pupils were treated to 12 different songs about different punctuation types, a range of funny sketches and quizzes to get them involved.

All of the pupils left the performances with massive smiles on their faces, the catchy songs in their heads and lots of funny chatter about different elements of punctuation and grammar.

“I loved the Grammar show, particularly when he spoke to the audience. It was very funny!”

“I really hope he comes in again soon. It was brilliant.”
