This KS1 quiz takes a look at syllables. This quiz helps children recognise how many syllables there are in words. This is an important skill that children in Key Stage 1 should learn. Knowing the syllables will aid their reading as it will teach them how to break a word up into recognisable sounds. It also is a firm foundation in their English and Literacy skill set.
Each word is made up of sounds, which can also be called syllables. The best way to describe syllables is to find the beats in a word. The word ‘happy’ is said like this: ‘hap – py’, there are two different sounds within the word. Test your knowledge on how many sounds or syllables there are in these words.
