    Re: "We are going to the zoo tomorrow," the pupils say.

    If you reported the speech in the past, then you would use "The pupils said they were going to the zoo the next day".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
