Spelling: Plurals 01

This KS2 English spelling quiz takes a look at plurals. Plurals are the opposite of singular words. We use plurals to show when there is more than one of something. In English, only nouns can become plural - I have one apple, but my friend has three apples. You have one board game, but you would like to have more board games. There are three regular plural endings: -s, -es, and -ies.

Some words have unusual plurals. Our second plurals quiz takes a look at a few exceptions. However for this quiz, we have chosen words with regular plural endings.

See if you know how to spell these ten and once you get full marks, move on to our second spelling quiz on plurals.
