Sentences - Completing

As children learn more about words in their English classes, they will begin to start using full sentences and spotting mistakes where the words just don't make sense. This quiz aids KS1 children’s comprehension, English and literacy skills. Key Stage 1 children will need to read the beginning of a sentence and identify which ending makes the most sense, choosing the word and completing the sentence.

When we write a sentence we have to make sure it makes sense. The questions below will show you the beginning of a sentence and you need to pick the most relevant ending. See if you can get full marks!

Join me up to my ending: The dog wagged his...
For this one, you only needed to pick the correct word. Dogs wag their tails and it was the only answer that would make sense.
Finish this sentence: The footballer ran towards the goal...
but fell over and lost the ball.
but left yesterday.
but found a new pair of shoes.
but decided to go the other way.
In the 2014 Football World Cup there were five own goals!
Finish this sentence: The television host was happy...
someone had finally lost the jackpot.
someone had finally won the jackpot.
someone had finally taken his coat.
someone had finally opened the window.
This beginning sentence assumes that you know a tv show would want you to win money - not lose it. In fact, all quiz shows involve people winning something, never losing!
Finish this sentence: The chef put the cake in the oven...
and grated the cheese.
and waited for it to rise.
and waited to add salt.
and mixed in some blueberries.
Here, you need to know that cakes rise in the oven. You also need to know that if you add blueberries to a cake, you'd do that before putting it in the oven.
Finish this sentence: He went skiing...
and horse riding.
and doughnuts.
but hated chairs.
but hated heights.
For this answer, you need to know that skiing includes heights. You need to be able to go to the top of a mountain and slide/ski back down it.
Finish this sentence: The flowers wilted...
because they were in the sunlight.
because they had been watered.
because they hadn't been watered in days.
because they were watching television.
Flowers need water, soil and sunlight. Once they've been picked and placed in a vase, they just need water to slow the wilting process.
Finish this sentence: The actor walked on stage...
but forgot to wear his shoes.
but forgot his coat.
but forgot to shut the door.
but forgot all his lines.
If you are in a play or are an actor, you learn lines. This means you learn what to say.
Finish this sentence: The dentist asked her to open her mouth...
so that he could give her a sweet.
so that she could speak clearly.
so that he could pull out the rotten tooth.
so that he could blow her nose.
The word 'so' is connecting these two sentences or clauses together. We could end the sentence with 'The dentist asked her to open her mouth,' as that sentence still makes sense. We then decided to add more information to that sentence by using the word 'so'.
Finish this sentence: The teacher pointed to the board
to show the children how to hit the target.
to show the children how to throw a ball.
to show the children how to spell the word.
to show the teacher how to spell the word.
The first two answers would make sense if it was a PE teacher but because there is a board we know they are inside.
Finish this sentence: I went to the park....
with my grandparents.
and painted the house.
with the gold finger.
and danced all night long.
When you read, it's always a good idea to use the picture to help you. If there was a picture of them painting a house too, then that would make sense.
