Fact: You can’t have jelly without whipped cream and sprinkles and you can’t have a successful education without a good understanding of English. We know there’s a lot to learn (the National Curriculum really likes to keep you on your toes, huh?) so we break everything down into nuggets of knowledge and present them to you in - ta dah! - a quiz.
English quizzes that will test you and teach you and make you wonder what you were ever worried about. Concerned about the ginormous workload in English? From adverbs to clauses, grammar to comprehension, we’ll help you understand the basics of English and some of the more specialist stuff. In addition, most of our quizzes have a link at the bottom to the relevant BBC Bitesize page.
How will English help thy life? Let us count the ways.
Firstly, it will help you with spelling, which means you’re less likely to wish your Great Aunt Mildred a ‘Happee Burfday’ in her card. Because you’ll know it’s actually spelled, ‘Happy Birthday’. And with a bit of luck you’ll spell her name right too!
Next, you’ll be able to understand the English language a little better. You use it every day, so why not know all about the adverbs and conjunctions and suffixes and syllables? If you were a cook, you’d want to know about the ingredients you use to make cupcakes, wouldn’t you? Well, you speak English, so let’s examine our language a little more closely. (By the way, if you are a cook, please do send us cupcakes.)
We’ll cover reading and writing and grammar and everything else you need to know in KS2 English. There are also some great quizzes, like learning the difference between fact and opinion and learning how to use metaphors.
It’s a whirlwind of linguistic fun.
Writing hands at the ready!
