(Fun KS3 English revision quizzes to teach students in Year 7, Year 8, and Year 9)

English. The fantabulous toolkit you use to speak, read and write. There are a bajillion reasons to master this particular subject (it can improve your speech, help you impress employers and polish your general writing abilities) but we’re going to focus on just one.

When you master English, loads of your other subjects at school will benefit.

Throughout your time in KS3, you’ll realise that all your subjects require a significant amount of writing, whether it’s answering questions in Geography, writing essays in History or explaining the process of photosynthesis in Science. Gosh, you are busy bees aren’t you? Luckily, there are two things that can help you write at school.

  1. A robot arm
  2. A thorough understanding of the English language.

We can’t help with the robot arm. At least, not yet. If we make any moves in the technological limb industry, you’ll be the first to know. But grasping the English language and using it to articulate your ideas clearly and effectively? We’ve got you covered!

So what exactly is in this toolkit of KS3 English? A whole lotta English knowledge, that’s what! From grammar and speech, to writing techniques and spelling, we’ve got so much stuff to fill your curious brains.

Don’t worry if it seems like a lot to learn, you’ve got Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 to master it all.

With a more in-depth understanding of English, you’ll be able to express yourself clearly and intelligently in many subjects at school. This is what makes English so important - it’s transferrable! But those transferrable skills work both ways. If your English isn’t up to scratch, it can have a negative impact on the rest of your subjects too. Gulp.

But hey - we’re here to help! We’ve got lots of quizzes to help you conquer the English syllabus.

Our KS3 English quizzes are crammed full of important knowledge from the National Curriculum and will help you master all kinds of topics like synonyms, verbs, sentence structure, onomatopoeia, nouns, suffixes and more!

English toolkits at the ready, kids. It’s time to train the next bunch of Shakespeares.
