Capital Letters 01

This KS2 English quiz will test your skills on capital letters. All sentences begin with a capital letter and so do proper nouns. When we are reading, capital letters help us to see where new sentences begin. Proper nouns include the names of people, places and organisations: i.e. Charles Dickens, London and the Ministry of Justice. Proper nouns are capitalised even when they are in the middle of a sentence.

Unless starting a sentence, the majority of words don’t need a capital letter. However, it’s important when writing English to know when to use them, otherwise your writing will be wrong. It’s especially important in tests and exams!
