What is a plural?
Plurals, or the plural form (as opposed to the singular form) are words that denote when there is more than one of something. This is most commonly done by adding the suffix ‘-s’ or ‘-es’ to a word.
However, there are examples of irregular plurals (sheep, child/children).
Examples of singular and plural nouns
- dog – dogs
- girl – girls
- book – books
- fox – foxes
- bush – bushes
- patch – patches

Pupils should be taught to add prefixes and suffixes, using the spelling rule for adding ‘-s’ or ‘-es’ as the plural marker for nouns and the third person singular marker for verbs.
