This KS2 English quiz will test your skills on adjectives. Adjectives are often called 'describing words' because they are used to describe other words (usually nouns). Adjectives make our writing more descriptive: an 'old, rotten banana' is not the same as 'a banana' or a 'delicious, ripe banana'.
When you begin to use adjectives, it will enhance not just your writing but also your speech. Adjectives can turn an ordinary sentence into something much more interesting and will make the reader want to read more. Next time you write a piece of writing, whether it’s a story, poem or even a diary entry, use a few adjectives to bring your words to life!
