Writing - Guess the Missing Letters

This Writing quiz sees if you can guess the missing letters. This quiz asks KS1 children to look at the word as individual letters, not sounds. This task will aid their editing skills, along with their English and literacy knowledge, as suggested by the National Curriculum.

Sometimes, we think faster than we can write. This may mean we forget letters or words in our sentences. The words below are all missing a few letters; see if you can find which ones have been forgotten.

  1. 'Somtimes I eat fis.' Which letters are missing from this sentence?
    It should say, 'Sometimes I eat fish'. Fish is very good for you and is full of vitamins and minerals that make you strong and healthy.
  2. Which letters are missing from the words: 'ther hous'?
    Although 'there' is a word, it doesn't fit next to 'house'. 'Their' house means the house belonging to the family.
  3. 'It was a cold, dak, niht.' Which letters are missing from this sentence?
    It should say, 'It was a cold dark night'. Cold is how we describe the weather but you can also catch a cold. A cold, or bug, starts in the nose and throat and makes you feel poorly.

    Elephants can live for seventy years and are the only mammals that can't jump.

  6. 'I had a grat time in the se.' Which letters are missing from this sentence?
    It should say, 'I had a great time in the sea.' The word 'sea' is a homophone. This means that 'sea' and 'see' sound the same but are spelt differently and mean different things.

    Hares are larger and have longer ears than rabbits.
  8. Which letters are missing from the words: 'lov chikens'?
    If you love chickens, you'll love them even more when you know they slurp grass like it's spaghetti!
  9. 'I wnt to th park.' Which letters are missing from this sentence?
