What are determiners?

A determiner is word that’s used to identify which particular thing we are talking about. It specifies a noun as known or unknown and goes before any modifiers (eg adjectives or other nouns). The articles ‘the’ (definite) and ‘a’ or ‘an’ (indefinite) are the most common type of determiner.

Determiner examples

  • Julia’s dad bought her a football. The football was expensive! [‘the’ is a determiner and refers us back to a particular football]
  • the home team [article, specifies the team as known]
  • a good team [article, specifies the team as unknown]
  • that pupil [demonstrative, known]
  • Julia’s parents [possessive, known]
  • some big boys [quantifier, unknown]

List of determiners KS2

  • articles (the, a or an)
  • demonstratives (eg this, those)
  • possessives (eg my, your)
  • quantifiers (eg some, every)

Year 4 (from Appendix 2)
