This KS2 English picture quiz will test you on onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is words that sound like the objects they name. Clatter, clash, rattle, bang! The English language is full of wonderful words which can be used for different sounds. When you read the word 'buzz', you can hear the sound of the bee. 'Onomatopoeia' is the name for words which create these sound effects.
Adding onomatopoeic words to your writing helps with visualising a scene for the reader, as well as making the story more enjoyable and interesting.
