Capital Letters and Full Stops

This quiz reminds KS1 children that every sentence must contain a few key ingredients: capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. This is the foundation and basic requirements suggested in the National Curriculum. This activity is primarily aimed at Year 1 but can be used to solidify what a Year 2 pupil already knows. Using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces improves a child’s literacy and all-round English skills.

All sentences should begin with a capital letter. To know when a sentence has finished, we write a full stop. When reading your book, you pause when you see a full stop and take a breath. When you write, you need to remember that the reader needs to breathe, so don’t forget full stops! Can you spot the perfect sentences?

  1. Which sentence is perfect?
    Remember a sentence needs one full stop at the end and don't get confused between a full stop and a comma.
  2. Which sentence is perfect?
    Every sentence you write should begin with a capital letter, end with a full stop and have finger spaces.
  3. Which sentence is perfect?
    Make sure you only put a full stop at the end of your sentence, anytime before that will ruin the meaning or not make sense.
  4. Which sentence is perfect?
    Make sure the full stop finishes the end of a complete sentence. When reading, you have to pause for a full stop, if you pause and it doesn't make sense then the full stop is in the wrong place.
  5. Which sentence is perfect?
    Make sure you have a clear space between each word; the gap should not be too big or too small.
