Nouns 02

Get ready for more noun fun with this KS2 English quiz! You already know nouns are names for people, places, and things. But guess what? Nouns can also be names for things you can't see, like feelings, ideas, and qualities. 'Anger' is a feeling, 'equality' is an idea, and 'generosity' is a quality.

This quiz is a bit trickier than the first one, so if you haven't played it yet, give it a go. If you don't get full marks this time, no worries! Play again until you're super confident spotting nouns, whether they're proper or a bit abstract.

Test your noun skills with this cool and challenging English quiz!
