WALT: Use commas in a list.
When we write a list in a sentence we use a form of punctuation called a comma. Commas look like full stops with tails. They are used to separate items like apples, bananas,plums and pears. The last two items in a list must always have the word ‘and’ in between them.
Below you will find a list of the Head Chef’s favourite foods. Rewrite this list, editing for commas.
