Narrative - First Person
Have you written a story about yourself?

Narrative - First Person

This quiz focusses on first person narrative. This quiz teaches KS1 children that when they write ‘I’, they are writing in the first person and that they should continue to write in a specific narrative. This quiz will aid their creative writing and improve their all-round knowledge of literacy and the English language.

If you write a story and it’s from your point of view and written as if you are talking to the reader - then this is called first person narrative. If I write ‘I went to the park’ - then I am writing in first person. Test your knowledge on writing and staying in first person narrative.
