Well Kevin a proper noun is something that needs a capital letter at the start and a noun is a naming word and something that you can draw. Examples of nouns are: chair, table, house, wall and phone. Examples of proper nouns are : Bangledesh, Spain, Africa, Charlotte and Sarah.

Hi Kevin. Let me explain what nouns and proper nouns are- nouns are words like dog, chair, apple, computer and tent.
A proper noun is a name of a place or person- it starts with a capital letter. January, Theo, Brazil, Tuesday and Santa.

A noun is something that you can draw and it is a object. Here are some examples: T.V., bag, D.S., cardboard box and cushion. A proper noun is a name of something like: England, Sarah, Wales, Bob and Ireland.

Good answer Ella. A D.S would be a proper noun though because it is a name with capital letters.

I think a noun is something that you could draw or touch for example a dog, a house, a flower, a laptop or a phone.

I think a proper noun is a peticular name of a person or place for example North Nibley, Mrs Jennings, Niall, France or Millie.

A good selection of examples Millie. Remember the noun is the object within the sentence - most of which you could draw.

a proper noun is the special word (or name) that we use for a person, place or organisation, like John, Leah, London, Dursley, or Apple. A name is a noun, but a very special noun - a proper noun. Proper nouns have special rules.

Common nouns are: man, woman, town, resteraunt and film.
Proper nouns: Matthew, Julia, Dursley, Mcdonalds and Madacasca 3.
\You must use capital letters with proper nouns.

Well a noun is some thing you can pike up and move. It is also some thing you can draw.
A proper noun is a full name of some thing e.g Bethan lewis. It is also a full name of a place e.g The Black Horse.
