Capital Letters and Spellings of Days

This quiz looks at capital letters and spellings of days. It reminds children that every day begins with a capital letter. This extends the National Curriculum's requirements for KS1 children to use capital letters correctly. Furthermore, they will need to write the date multiple times a day and know the shorthand version of days (Monday/Mon). This will enhance not only their English and literacy skills, but also their spelling.

There are seven days in a week and each day begins with a capital letter. Sometimes we write the full name (Monday) and sometimes we write the shorthand version (Mon). Test your knowledge on capital letters for sentences and days of the week.
