Awesome and Amazing Alliterations

This week the children were introduced to the concept of alliterations when we read a book called ‘Dinosaur Days’.

Alliteration refers to the repetition of a particular sound in the first syllables of a series of words and/or phrases, for example:

Raging Rhinos roast red raspberries rapidly.

The children worked really hard to come up with a clever alliterative sentence that included their name. Have a look at their beautiful posters below.


Can you think of a clever alliterative sentence that include the names of your brother or sister?

How many words with the same starting sound can you put into a SENSIBLE sentence?

      These are great alliterations for your brother and sister! I wonder if you can think of some for your mum and dad too?

      It’s great to see you commenting on the blog! You have done a fabulous job with your alliterations. I especially like the one you mum has written about you! Maybe you could try and think of a clever one for your mum and dad too?

      You have done a fabulous job with your alliterations! I love that you have taken it further and done one for your mum and dad too! I think the one Milly made up for my mum was very funny, do you remember what it was? Can you think of an alliterative sentence with more than 5 words?

  4. Hi Miss Hunichen
    I have thought of an alliteration sentence for my sisters. Zippy Zara zooms to the zoo. Zillionaire Zoe zigzags down zoo-zoo road.

    From Zara and Jack.

    • Hi Jack
      You were clever to be able to think of different alliterations for your sisters considering both of their names start with ‘z’. I wonder why you don’t have a name that starts with ‘z’ as well, can you think of a boys name starting with ‘z’?

  5. dear miss hunichen
    here is my allitteration
    shy shyla has a shower
    funny finn flys fabulously for fun
    love neivh

    • Dear Neivh
      I really like the alliterations you have written for you brother and sister. I am especially impressed that for Shyla you have included the ‘sh’ sound in all of your words. I wonder if you can think of one where all the words have a ‘ch’ sound at the start?
