Adjectives 02

This KS2 English quiz takes another look at Adjectives. If you haven’t played the first Adjectives quiz, it might be worth doing so before tackling this one.

Adjectives are words that change nouns and pronouns. You know that adjectives are 'describing' words. Adjectives also allow us to compare people or objects. For example: My dog is big, but that dog is bigger. 'Bigger' is a comparative adjective. 'Biggest' is a superlative adjective - it would be used if we were comparing more than two dogs. The endings '-er' and '-est' can be added to most adjectives, but there are a few exceptions to the rule.

Test your knowledge with this second Adjectives quiz.
