Alphabetising

Get ready for a fun KS2 English quiz about alphabetising! Alphabetising is like arranging words in ABC order, and it's super helpful. Computers can do it, but knowing how can save you time finding words in a dictionary or names in a list.

Using a dictionary is like a word adventure! First, you've got to know how to spell the word, and then you find it by knowing where it is in the alphabet. Thousands of words are in there! Take the alphabetising quiz, and don't forget to check the second or even third letter sometimes!
