This is the question:

1) Rewrite the correct sentences.

a) Mum goes to work on the train.
b) what lovely weather!
c) We're singing in the rain

what? it doesn't make sense!

breatheslowly Sun 09-Feb-14 22:46:56

I don't want to look stupid...

a) I think the sentence is fine
b) What lovely weather! but I don't think it is actually a sentence - where is the verb/
c) We're singing in the rain.

Is there any more to the test?

I don't think I would score very highly. I don't even understand what I'm supposed to do!

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 09-Feb-14 22:49:19

Well I'm failing to. What's the actual question?

Marcipex Sun 09-Feb-14 22:49:35

Is that it?
1- seems fine to me.
2-needs a capital.
3-needs a full stop.

What they all said!

BoyFromTheBigBadCity Sun 09-Feb-14 22:49:41

Sentence a) is fine surely? Or is the problem that it is unclear if Mum travels to work on the train or is working on the train itself?

Then What a lovely day! needs punctuation and We're singing in the rain. needs a full stop... I couldn't even read aged 6 though.

How can you get a D in that??

Clarify, please, OP!

LettertoHermioneGranger Sun 09-Feb-14 22:50:13

This is a little silly, I think they're all fine depending on context, with the exception being the capital letter in the second sentence and the period in the third.

I suppose
Mum takes the train to work. - to avoid confusion that she might do work on the train.
The weather is lovely! Perhaps a little more 'correct' but was fine before.
We're singing in the rain.

A) looks right to me.
B) I think needs a capital letter
C) Needs a full stop.

Floggingmolly Sun 09-Feb-14 22:50:20

Does b) need a capital letter? hmm. I probably got a D too

6yr old? I don't know what to do...

Mum goes on a train to work?

TeenageAdvice15 Sun 09-Feb-14 22:51:10

Rewrite the correct sentances.
They are all correct so don't need changing, just copying out again.

BrianTheMole Sun 09-Feb-14 22:51:35

There must be more to it than this confused

Longdistance Sun 09-Feb-14 22:51:45

What lovely weather?

usernameunknown Sun 09-Feb-14 22:52:31

1. Seems fine

The others should obviously be.

2. What shitty British weather.
3. We're pissed off with the rain.

Marcipex Sun 09-Feb-14 22:52:50

No, the weather is lousy?

snowqu33n Sun 09-Feb-14 22:52:51

by train
