Can someone explain... (please)?

Can someone please explain Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Synonyms

and any other of these things we use in english?

Im a year 12 student and do not fully understand them, although im pretty sure a verb is a doing word like.. jump, pull ETC

Any help will be appreciated!

Update:
