Alphabet - Upper and Lower Case Letters 2

This quiz asks questions on upper and lower case Letters and is for the first term in Year 1 (KS1). This activity will aid both handwriting and sentence level as set out in the National Curriculum.

By KS1, children need to know the alphabet and also need to be able to form each letter correctly by using either upper or lower case. This quiz asks the children to match the upper and lower case letters, reminding them of their varying formation.

This game will assist their sentence, English and literacy level skills.

We begin every sentence and name with a capital letter; all the other letters are lower case. The alphabet has 26 upper case letters (ABC) and lower case letters (abc). Every time you write your name, you begin with an upper case letter and the rest are lower case. See how many letters you remember.
