Grammar Ninja: Great game for revising parts of speech

This time of year, we are revising the grammar

we have learned during the year.

We found this great game.

It is called Grammar Ninja.

It is great fun

and we certainly get to revise our grammar.

Try it and see.

We really like the music 🙂

Audioboo – Time for Grammar – Nouns and Naming Words

We are learning about nouns and naming words.

A noun is the name of anything.


Sometimes it is helpful to say

‘If I can take a photograph of something, it is a noun’.

But this is not always true.

Some nouns would be hard to take pictures of.

Many of these special nouns end in -ness.

For example: happiness and sadness.

These special nouns are called ‘abstract’ nouns.


Love is a noun but it would be hard to take a picture of it.

Clara drew of picture of what love means to her.

Nicole also drew one.

So did Niamh.


Learn a little more about nouns that you could not take a photograph of!


We gave examples of nouns we knew on this Audioboo:


These are nouns you could not take a photograph of:


Abstract Nouns – Part 2

Senan drew a picture to illustrate the abstract noun ‘sound’.

It would be challenging to take a photograph of a ‘noise’ or a ‘sound’.
