Year 1 - The Sound ng

This Sound ng spelling quiz helps KS1 children learn spellings that end with ‘ng’ – but not necessarily ‘ing’. The ‘ng’ sound can be quite difficult to say without letters before it but the sound comes from pushing the back of your tongue up and momentarily closing your throat.

The sound ‘ng’ is quite difficult to say but luckily we don’t ever have to say ‘ng’ alone – it’s mostly at the end of a word and follows a vowel. See how good you are at spellings with the ‘ng’ sound.
