Using commas in lists

Today, we have worked as a class to revise the rules on commas in lists. These were our class practice lists:

“I went to the shop and I bought some cherries, a packet of crisps, some strawberries, a Nintendo Switch, some apples, some chocolate and some grapes.”

“At the shop I bought some ham, some strawberries, a turkey, a jigsaw, some chicken and a PS4.”

We then had the challenge of writing our own shopping lists which included correct punctuation.

“You have to use commas between each object on the list”

“I find it tricky to remember the and, but I’m trying my hardest.”
