Year 1 - The Sound oo (book)

This 'Sound oo (book)' spelling quiz teaches KS1 children the other sound this digraph makes. This sound can be either oo/ew or oo/u/uh and the best way for children to learn is to try and say the word both ways and see which one is most familiar or sounds like a word they’ve heard before.

The digraph ‘oo’ can make two sounds. This quiz will ask you to spell ‘oo’ words where the sound is the same as ‘u/uh’, like in the word ‘book’. Improve your spelling on words with this ‘oo’ sound.

    Captain Hook is called this because he has a hook for a hand!
