Days of the week

 

There are seven days in a week. Each day has a different name but they all end with 'day'.

 

When we write the days of the week, we always use a capital letter at the start of the word. The days of the week are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

 

Watch the video below to find out more.

Help Marty find out about the days of the week.

 

Nouns and capital letters

 

Common nouns are the names of things. These don't use a capital letter unless they are at the start of a sentence.

Proper nouns are the names of a specific person, place or thing. These always start with a capital letter.

 

For example:

  • The word girl is a common noun, so doesn't start with a capital (unless its at the start of a sentence).
  • The name Jessica is a proper noun, because it is the name of a particular girl, so always starts with a capital letter.

 

We also use a capital letter at the start of a new sentence and when using the word I to talk about ourselves. For example: On Monday, I play my favourite game.

Activity 1: Let's use capital letters

 

As you have learnt, we use capital letters in a variety of ways.

They are used:

  • at the beginning of a sentence,
  • for proper nouns (names, places, countries, days of the week, nationalities, languages),
  • when using I to talk about yourself.

 

Try writing one, two or more sentences that use capital letters for all three reasons above. Once you've finished, circle the capital letters and explain why they are capital letters.

 

Here is an example: On Monday, I went to the Trafford Centre with my brother Saif.
