Hello, young learners! Welcome to this fun-filled quiz all about writing sentences. If you've been practicing your sentence making at school, this is a great chance to show off what you've learned.

1.
Which of these sentences expresses a fact?
I think cats are great pets.
I wish I could fly.

2.

Exclamatory sentences express strong emotions, e.g. anger or excitement, and always end with an exclamation mark (!).

A question sentence is a sentence that asks something. Therefore, 'Is it time for lunch yet?' is the correct answer because it's asking a question.
6.
Which of these sentences is a command sentence?
Close the door.

Jack and jill went up the hill.

The word 'I' should always be capitalised, no matter where it is in the sentence.
