It's important to use punctuation in your writing.


This quiz on punctuation works on the National Curriculum's requirements that Year 2 children in KS1 should proofread their work, looking for missing punctuation. This helps children to read carefully and improves their understanding of literacy and the English language.

When we write we have to make sure we have finger spaces, capital letters, correct spellings and punctuation. That’s a lot to remember! Have a look at these questions and try and find the missing punctuation like commas, full stops, exclamation and question marks.
