This quiz helps KS1 children recognise two words that when put together make a different word. Compound words adds another dimension to their existing repertoire of English and literacy. The National Curriculum states that Year 1 children should know that they are two separate words that should be spelt as they are and just combined to make one new word.
A compound word is two separate words that have been pushed together. The word football combines the word ‘foot’ and ‘ball’. See how much you know about compound words.
