Nouns 01

Let's dive into a cool KS2 English quiz about nouns! Nouns are special words for people, places, or things. Proper nouns have capital letters, like Paris, John, or Australia. If it goes with 'the' or 'a', like 'the apple' or 'a tree', it's a noun. Nouns can also belong to someone or something, like 'the dog's collar' or 'my headache'.

In almost every sentence, there's at least one noun. You might know some from KS1, but let's spot them in this KS2 quiz. If you ace it, you're becoming a noun expert!
