This quiz teaches children about capital letters and spellings of months. It reminds KS1 children that every month begins with a capital letter. It also identifies the shorthand version to describe months of the year. Although this knowledge isn’t stipulated in the National Curriculum, it is something that arises every day when they write the date on multiple pieces of work. Furthermore, it strengthens their English, literacy and spelling knowledge with the correct use of capital letters.
There are twelve months in a year and each month begins with a capital letter. Sometimes we write the full month name (January) and sometimes we write the shorthand version (Jan). Test your knowledge on remembering capital letters and connecting the correct short and long version month name.
