Year 1 - The Sound are

This 'Sound are' spelling quiz will help KS1 children learn spellings that include this sound. The words in this quiz have all been taken from and added to those in the National Curriculum.

When you say the ‘are’ sound, it sounds like ‘air’. Although both sounds make the same noise, there are certain words that have to be written with ‘are’. See how many 'are' words you know how to spell.
