Homophones 2
We ate all eight slices of pizza! The words 'ate' and 'eight' are homophones because they sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings. Do you like pizza? I do!

Homophones 2

This quiz extends the knowledge learned during our other Homophones 1 quiz. This task asks children to identify some of the less commonly used homophones and is, ideally, for Year 2 pupils in KS1 English and Literacy classes.

A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word but is spelt differently and means something completely different. An example of a homophone is ‘site’ and ‘sight’. They sound the same but a ‘site’ is a location and ‘sight’ is something you see.

  1. 'I can't _ my _' Fill in the gaps.
    'I can't find my bear.' The word 'fined' means you have to pay money for something and 'bare' means naked.
  2. 'He _ _ the _' Fill in the three words.
    'He whirled through the desert.' If he 'whirled' he twirled and if he threw something then it was thrown through the air. Finally a dessert is something you eat and a desert is a hot and sandy place.
  3. '– – you outside' Fill in the gaps.
    'I'll meet you outside.' The word 'meet' means you will meet somebody but 'meat' is a type of food. There are two more words that sound like I'll (I will); there's 'isle', which is an island and 'aisle' which is like a shopping aisle or lane full of food.
  4. '_ a good _' Fill in the gaps.
    'Be a good guest.' A 'bee' is an insect and if you 'guessed' what the answer is, then you took a chance. If you are a 'guest' then you are just visiting.
  5. 'I _ you were _' Fill in the two gaps.
    'I heard you were bored.' A herd of animals is a large group and a board game can stop you from being bored.
  6. 'I _ _ things about my friends.' Fill in the gaps.
    'I know four things about my friends.' The word 'know' comes from 'knowledge'. There are three types of 'four'; there's the number four, 'for' as in, 'are you going for dinner' and 'fore', which means the front or forefront of something.
  7. 'Please put this in the mail.' Which word is a homophone?
    The word 'mail' means post but it sounds the same as 'male', which means man or boy.
  8. 'I have a _ head because I have the _' Fill in the missing words.
    'I have a sore head because I have the flu.' A bird can soar up high in the sky, which means they flew high up. There is also the word 'saw', which sounds the same as sore and soar.
  9. 'That is a waste.' Which word is a homophone?
    If you waste something, then you are not using something that others might like. A 'waist' is part of your body, around your stomach.
  10. 'You _ _ inside the cave.' Which two words could fill in the gaps?
    'You are allowed inside the cave.' If it belongs to some people we say it is 'ours' and if you need to say something out loud, we would say 'aloud'.
