Today in English we are looking at onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is a word which sounds like what it means.

'Thud', 'crash', 'bang' and 'buzz' are all examples


Watch the video on the link below to give you some ideas. If you want to you can also complete the quick activity at the bottom of the page.

Year 1:

I have added a word mat below with some onomatopoeias on them. Can you come up with a sentence for 5 of these words. You are welcome to do more then 5 if you would like to.


Year 2:

Start off by writing a sentence for 2 of the onomatopoeias in the document below.

Once you have done that below is a word document which contains some sentences. Can you think of an onomatopoeia for each of those words?

Hint: you can use the word mat to help you.

Grown ups: There are suggested answers on the second page
