Capital Letters 02
I loved our holiday in Canada. Countries are proper nouns and need a capital letter.

Capital Letters 02

This KS2 English quiz takes a further look at capital letters. If you've tried the first quiz on capital letters, you will know that capital letters are used for the beginnings of sentences and for proper nouns. Did you also know that proper nouns include the names of titles, days, months, countries and languages?

Remember that if a proper noun is at the beginning, middle or even end of a sentence, it will still require a capital letter. Many people are unsure whether seasons (such as autumn and winter) should be capitalised or not. As you can see from the previous sentence, they don’t need to be capitalised (and this might help you with one of our questions).

Challenge yourself further by trying this second Capital Letters quiz.
