Homophone Riddles

Homophone Riddles

What do you call a jumbo jet before it’s painted? The answer to this riddle (which you will find near the bottom of this page) is a pair of homophones. Children love solving riddles and also creating their own. This material can be used across KS1 – KS3 to both introduce the concept of homophones to younger children and for re-visiting it in subsequent years to consolidate the children’s knowledge. This resource is intended to foster youngster’s confidence and skill in navigating the quirks of English spelling by making it a game to engage with, rather than a problem to worry about. In the PowerPoint presentation the children are introduced to an alien creature called Korb who lives on the far away planet of SPaG. Korb explains to the children what a homophone is and then shows them how they can create teasing riddles. The answer to each riddle is always a pair of homophone words. Look out for another Goodeyedeers resource called ‘Homophone Riddle-Poems’ where you will meet Korb’s alien friend, Riya. The answer to the riddle at the top of this page is – a plain plane!

Aimed at children in Years 5, 6 and 7.

The children have practice in recognising nouns, adjectives and verbs and in using the dictionary to find suitable replacement words. The Teachers’ Notes gives background information to the creation of the poem and in particular, Lewis Carroll’s use of ‘portmanteau words’. They also have a number of suggestions for further activities. There is a document with the text of the poem plus another where Humpty Dumpty explains the first verse of the poem to Alice. According to him, he can - “… explain all the poems that ever were invented - and a good many that haven't been invented just yet.” If you enjoy this resource then please tell your colleagues and maybe leave us a review.
