This KS2 English quiz will test you on alphabetising. Alphabetising is ordering words alphabetically. Although computers can help us to alphabetise lists, knowing how to alphabetise can still help you to find information that is stored alphabetically. This can save you time when looking for a word in a dictionary, a name in a list, or a book in the library.
If you want to know the meaning of a word, you’ll need to use a dictionary. Of course, you’ll need to know how to spell the word first. Then to find that particular word, you’ll need to know where it would appear in an alphabetical list. Remember, there are thousands of words in an ordinary dictionary.
Try this quiz on alphabetising, and remember that sometimes you will need to look at the second or even third letter!
