Word Order 1
Was the flowers full of garden. This sentence isn't right. Do you know what it should be?

Word Order 1

This first quiz looks at word order and helps children learn how to edit their work. The National Curriculum expects Year 1 and 2 children at the KS1 level to be able to read what they have written and check that it makes sense. This quiz asks them to spot if a sentence is incorrect and to question the order of words. It is a reminder for children to check their literacy and English writing.

Whenever we write, we should always read through our work. Sometimes we miss punctuation or words, add words twice or the sentence just doesn’t make sense.
