Why learn about nouns?

Nouns are names of things, people or places, like ‘picture’, ‘Dave’ or ‘Glasgow’.

Quick tips for tutors

Nouns includes:

  • Recognising different types of nouns in a sentence or text.
  • The function of nouns in a sentence.
  • The formation of nouns from other word types.
  • Regular and irregular plurals of nouns.
  • Use of nouns after prepositions.


What do the levels mean?

Skillswise uses the levels of the National Qualifications Framework, which start at Entry 1, 2 and 3 and then go on to Level 1 and Level 2.

  • Entry 3 covers the basic concepts and is a good preparation for starting a Level 1 course.
  • Level 1 is roughly equivalent to a GCSE D-G grade in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, and a Foundation level at Standard Grade in Scotland. A useful qualification for many jobs.
