Year 1 - The Sound ear

This 'Sound ear' spelling quiz makes KS1 children aware of the words that are spelt with those three letters. The words are taken from and added to those suggested in the National Curriculum.

The letters ‘ear’ make the same sound as ‘eer’. Any time you see these three letters it could make the 'ear' sound or the 'er' sound. This test is on the 'ear' - the longer vowel sound it makes. Test your knowledge on 'ear' spellings.
