Animal Noises

This quiz expands the vocabulary of Key Stage 1 children. During the early years, children are made aware of animals and the noises they make – this quiz should consolidate and enhance upon what they already know. It serves as a reminder of what they have learned so far when it comes to literacy and the English language, in addition to touching upon onomatopoeia.

We have given names to the noises certain animals make. We say dogs bark. The word ‘bark’ tells us the type of noise that animal makes. There are a few words that describe these noises. See how many you know.
