  • Question 1

Write out this sentence again using capital letters for names.

 

Don't forget the capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, too!

 

my dog is called freddie.

CORRECT ANSWER
My dog is called Freddie.
EDDIE SAYS
Great to see you giving this a try. All sentences should start with a capital letter so you should use a capital 'M' for 'My'. Any name should also be given a capital letter. In this example the name of the dog is 'Freddie'. This word should have a capital 'F'.
  • Question 2

Write out this sentence again using a capital letter at the beginning and for any names.

 

josie went to the cinema with millie.

CORRECT ANSWER
Josie went to the cinema with Millie.
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? 'Josie' should have a capital letter because it is the start of the sentence and it is someone's name. 'Millie' should have a capital letter as it is the name of someone. Now try the next question.
  • Question 3

Write out this sentence again using a capital letter at the beginning and for any names.

 

my name is harry jones.

CORRECT ANSWER
My name is Harry Jones.
EDDIE SAYS
Did you remember to use a capital letter for the surname as well as the first name? Remember all names must have a capital letter. Names are important and special. Don't forget the capital letter at the start of the sentence!
  • Question 4

Write out this sentence again using a capital letter at the beginning and for any names.

 

joe went to play with his friend adil.

CORRECT ANSWER
Joe went to play with his friend Adil.
EDDIE SAYS
Did you remember them all? 'Joe' should have a capital letter as it is a name and the first word in the sentence. 'Adil' should also have a capital letter as that is the name of the friend.
  • Question 5

Write out this sentence again using a capital letter at the beginning and for any names.

 

my best friends are called rachel williams and tom cook.

CORRECT ANSWER
My best friends are called Rachel Williams and Tom Cook.
EDDIE SAYS
There were a few to remember for this question! The first word in the sentence should always have a capital letter. Any names should also start with a capital letter even when they appear in the middle of a sentence. 'Rachel Williams' and 'Tom Cook' should have a capital letter at the start of both their first and surname. Keep it up superstar!
  • Question 6

Write out this sentence again using a capital letter at the beginning and for any names.

 

they called the puppies holly and ivy.

CORRECT ANSWER
They called the puppies Holly and Ivy.

Did you get it correct? 'They' should have a capital letter as it is the first word in the sentence. Both the names of the puppies should also start with capital letters. Remember all names are important so need to start with capital letters.
