Alliteration

Welcome to a fun KS2 English quiz about alliteration! Alliteration is like a word party where sounds get repeated, making sentences sound super cool. Ever tried saying, "Betty Botter had some butter"? That's a tongue twister full of alliteration – the 'b' sound bounces around!

Alliteration isn't just for tricky talk; it's also in poems and helps us remember words. For example, 'Tommy the tortoise' sounds snappy because the 't' sounds match. Ready to be an alliteration detective? Take this quiz and spot the word party in action!
