Year 1 - The End Sound ss

The End Sound ss is a quiz that helps KS1 children learn the spellings for words that end in ‘ss’. The words are taken from and added to those stated in the National Curriculum.

If a word ends in an ‘s’ sound, it is most likely going to be written like this: ‘ss’. If the vowel sound in the word makes a short sound or noise, then the next letters will be doubled. See if you can get full marks in these spellings.
