This 3-page worksheet for children in years 5 and 6 is an excellent way of revising and practising words with silent letters. Students can be set the following four activities as part of a classroom lesson, for assessment purposes or as a homework task:

  • Circle the silent letters in 20 words, and identify the missing silent letters in a further 27 words
  • Starting with a pair of image prompts, use at least word with a silent letter in a written sentence about each picture
  • Replace the underlined words or phrases in five different sentences with a word that includes a silent letter
  • Write a short passage in response to an image prompt that includes as many words with silent letters as possible from a pre-chosen list of six
