This ‘Make a Match’ game is a fun way for pupils in Year 4 to explore types of nouns, including abstract, concrete, proper and common nouns. Pupils will group the nouns by type, learning that some nouns can belong to more than one category.

The game can be played as a class or in small groups and is perfect for adult led interventions to revisit key knowledge and skills.

What are the different types of nouns?

Proper nouns give a particular name to a specific person, place or organisation. Days of the week and months of the year are also proper nouns. Proper nouns always begin with a capital letter. Examples of proper nouns are Lizzie, Monday, London or St Peter’s School.

Common nouns are nouns that are not proper. They are generic names for people, places or objects, for example boy, day, country or chair. Common nouns can also be concrete or abstract.

Concrete nouns identify things that can be physically seen or touched, like bed, kitchen or teacher.

Abstract nouns name things that cannot physically be touched. They are ideas, feelings or a state of being such as suffering or beauty.
