This KS2 English quiz takes a first look at nouns. Nouns are the names of persons, places or things. Proper nouns are those with capital letters: Paris, John, English, Australia are all proper nouns. If a word belongs with 'the' or 'a', such as 'the apple' or 'a tree', it is a noun. Nouns can also belong to someone or something: 'the dog's collar', or 'my headache'.
In most, if not all, sentences, there is at least one noun. You will already have learned some of them in KS1, but see if you can spot them in this KS2 quiz.
If you get full marks, you are really getting to know about nouns!
