Year 1 - The Sound au
Reading with your child is a great way to improve their spelling.

Year 1 - The Sound au

This 'Sound au' spelling quiz helps KS1 children learn that these letters make the ‘or’ sound. This quiz will help them learn the spellings suggested and added to those in the National Curriculum.

When you say the ‘au’ sound, it sounds like ‘or’. This is quite a difficult sound to learn as it looks nothing like the way it sounds, so you have to try and remember this one! This spelling quiz will test you on words that have the ‘au’ sound in them.
