These bright, appealing grammar worksheets are a great help for practising and revising the use of consonance at KS2. There are three worksheets in total, covering the following five sections – ‘understand’, ‘challenge’, ‘test’, ‘explain’ and ‘apply’.

  • Understand

    Students identify word pairs showing consonance, circle letters that create consonance and suggest two words that share consonance with two existing words.

  • Explain

    ‘What effect does the repetition of soft consonant sounds have on a reader? Give an example.’

  • Test

    Students identify sentences that include consonance and complete three partial sentences with words that create consonance with specific words.

  • Challenge

    Students write three short sentences, each containing an example of consonance, in response to an image prompt.

  • Apply

    ‘Imagine that you are suddenly transported from a calm and peaceful setting to a place of chaos. How do you feel? What has happened? Write a passage about your experience. Use examples of soft consonance in one part and hard consonance in another to highlight the contrast between these places.’

  • What is consonance?

    Consonance occurs when identical or similar consonants are repeated in neighbouring words with different vowel sounds. It can help to think of consonance as a counterpart to the repetition of vowel sounds termed ‘assonance’.

    • came - home
    • lumpy - bumpy
    • pitter - patter
    • swing - thing

    Pupils should continue to add to their knowledge of linguistic terms, including those to describe grammar, so that they can discuss their writing and reading.
