KS1 English Quiz - Rhyming Words 1 (Questions)

This is our first quiz about rhyming words. This quiz helps KS1 children identify rhyming words. Using rhyming words in their poems and stories will add to their existing knowledge of literacy and English. The National Curriculum states that Year 1 students should be able to appreciate rhymes and thus be able to identify them when reading or reciting a poem.

A rhyme is when two words are different but they sound the same. The words ‘blue’ and ‘flew’ are completely different but they rhyme. Test your knowledge on rhyming words.
