Nouns - Singular and Collective
The rainbow shone in the sky. There are two nouns in this sentence - rainbow and sky.

Nouns - Singular and Collective

This quiz is for KS1 Year 2 children and any Year 1 children that have played the Nouns - Identifying quiz. The National Curriculum states that children should know what a noun is; this quiz helps their understanding of nouns, both singular and collective, and tackles the nouns given to groups. Being able to use singular and collective nouns, and to tell the difference between them, will boost children’s English writing and literacy knowledge.

A noun is a word given to a commonly used object, place or group. Sometimes we have noun names for groups like ‘people,’ ‘bunch’ and ‘pair.'
