Year 1 - The Sound nk

This Sound nk spelling quiz helps KS1 children learn spellings that end with ‘nk’. The ‘nk’ sound can be quite difficult to say without letters before it. Similar to ‘ng’, the sound comes from pushing the back of your tongue up and momentarily closing your throat.

The sound ‘nk’ is quite difficult to say but luckily we don’t ever have to say ‘nk’ alone – it’s always at the end of a word unless a suffix has been added. Whenever you see ‘nk’ a vowel will go before it. Test your knowledge on spellings with the ‘nk’ sound.
