  1. A sentence is a group of words that makes complete sense by itself. for example,
    1.Sam walked down the street to get some
    sweets from the shop.
    but that was a full sentence, some sentences only have 2 or even three words in it like this one:
    Leo, is happy.

  2. well a sentence is a line or two which has to be changed and verified by someone or a teacher.
    in a sentence you would of have to include description and sense so for example Jim had to go to high qualified scientist and show how to grow a sunflower without a seed you would have to make sense in your sentences.
    types of sentences, we have interrogative, exclamatory ,imperative and declarative.
    from our S.P.A.G board it says that simple and complex sentences are normally used with a range of time connectives, for example, jack took the cow to the market whilst his mother stayed at home to feed the chickens
    you could use sentence starters with comers for example, smiling suspiciously, so on

    • Thank you Charlie. Make sure that your sentences begin with a capital letter though and that you have used one for all proper nouns. Does your sentence need a conjunction or another piece of punctuation?

  5. a sentence is a bunch of words in a line or more and you need to make it amazing to read because if it isn’t then no one will read it and it will be boring

    • Thank you Gracie. Does a sentence have to be more than a line? I know that longer sentences have detail, but do writers sometimes use very short sentences too? Why do they do this?

  6. A sentence is made of one or more clauses a clause is made of an adverbial+verb+object and etc. for example: the kids watched tv while their mother made tea. the first clause is the kids and the other clause is the mother made tea.in the first clause the object is the tv. and that’s it for now

  7. Sentences should hAve a part saying why the person is doing the thing. Explanment (pritpal is happy because she finaly got to the end of reading a book. So I said why I was happy. Here’s one that people won’t find intesting. Pritpal was happy. So you wanna say why the persons got that emotion.

  10. a sentence can be vey long or very short and it can have a variety of puncation.A sentence doesn’t have to be an English sentence it can be an math sentence

  11. sentences are where you need to say why you are doing the thing. Heres an example, Pritpal was happy because she finaly got to the end of the book. So I said why I was happy that makes the sentence better. Heres one without saying why I am happy, Pritpal was happy. That sentence was boring and noboy will be intrested. so my first one was better. In your sentence you could have a cause. If you have a question just ask me.

  12. sentence are a group of words that are put together into a line for exsable,

Some writers try to leave a message like in comprehension when they ask you what’s the message that obviously a message.
