This KS2 English quiz takes a look at compound words. Compound words are two words together to make a new word. The English language contains many compound words. 'Ladybird' is a good example - it's not a lady, or a bird!
If you are unsure whether a word is a compound word or not, see how many words within the main word there are. If there are two words (that can be complete words in their own right), then you’ve got a compound word.
Compound words are made from two whole words, so be careful not to be tricked by prefixes when you try this English quiz.
