This quiz looks at pronouns. It helps children in Key Stage 1 know how to use ‘he', ‘she', ‘they’ etc. instead of repeating the proper noun each time. Although not stipulated in the National Curriculum, it is assumed that during this key stage, children learn not to repeat proper nouns and use pronouns in their place. This will greatly improve their English language and literacy skills.
‘Katie liked her apple. Katie’s apple was green. Katie was hungry.’ Instead of writing Katie’s name each time, we would write a pronoun instead like this: ‘Katie liked her apple. Her apple was green. She was hungry.’ The words ‘her’ and ‘she’ are pronouns and stop us from repeating her name.
