  • Question 1

Jessie felt really unwell on her way to Saint George's Hospital on Wednesday morning.
CORRECT ANSWER
Jessie
Saint George's Hospital
Wednesday
EDDIE SAYS
This question checks that students understand that a Proper noun is the name of a person, place or time.
  • Question 2

Choose the abstract noun in the following sentence:

I was feeling really unhappy.
CORRECT ANSWER
unhappy
EDDIE SAYS
This checks that the student can correctly identify the feeling of being unhappy as an abstract noun.
  • Question 3

A common noun is:

CORRECT ANSWER
A place or thing that is not unique
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to show that they understand the difference between different noun types.
  • Question 4

Write the plural form of the following common nouns:

CORRECT ANSWER

Column A

Column B

Sheep
Sheep
cacti
cactuses
wife
wives
EDDIE SAYS
This checks the students knowledge of how common nouns change or stay the same when becoming plural and explores some irregular spelling forms.
  • Question 5

Replace the Proper Nouns in the following sentence with Personal Pronouns:

Peter went to the newsagents before Holly noticed and Peter missed breakfast.
CORRECT ANSWER
He
she
he
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to replace Proper Nouns with possessive personal nouns.
  • Question 6

Identify whether the noun in the following sentence is singular or plural?

The schools' results in the town were poor.
CORRECT ANSWER
plural
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to study the position of the apostrophe which alters the meaning. As the apostrophe appears after the "s" it is more than one school.
  • Question 7

Underline the noun phrase in the following sentence:

CORRECT ANSWER
The mountain of litter needed to be sorted.
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to identify the "Litter" as the noun so the noun phrase includes an adjective - the mountain of...
  • Question 8

Change the following verbs into nouns:

CORRECT ANSWER

Column A

Column B

advise
advice
practise
practice
license
licence
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to recognise the change in spelling and meaning of these words when changed from a verb to a noun.
  • Question 9

Underline the relative pronoun in the following sentence:

CORRECT ANSWER
The woman that stood by the bus stop was becoming frustrated as she had waited over an hour for a bus!
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to identify the relative pronoun which tells the reader where the woman was and adds context to the sentence.
  • Question 10

Correct the errors in the following sentence:

The english lesson had lasted over an hour now and the Boy was becoming really board.
CORRECT ANSWER
English Lesson
boy
bored
EDDIE SAYS
This involves the student thinking about the types of nouns and that a proper noun such as the "English Lesson" requires a capital letter. However the "boy" is used as a common noun and therefore does not need a capital letter. It also allows the student to display knowledge of homophones such as board and bored.
  • Question 11

Choose the correct collective noun for a group of birds:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
flock
EDDIE SAYS
This allows the student to correctly choose the collective noun. It allows the student to acknowledge that there are special nouns to describe a collection/group of something or someone.
