22 Punctuation Punctuation provides boundaries in writing and helps to express emphasis and additional meaning we express in other ways when we talk. Punctuation helps to chunk sense. In speech, a combination of intonation, rhythm, tone of voice and pause is used to mark sense-units. Punctuation performs these functions in writing.
23 Punctuation Progression KS1 Year 1 capital letter, full stop, exclamation mark, question mark Year 2 commas in a list, apostrophes (contraction and possession)
