Year 1 - The Sound ow (how)

This 'Sound ow' spelling quiz helps KS1 children spell words with this digraph when it is said like ‘how’ and not ‘know’. There are two ways you can say these letters (ow) but this quiz is designed to help children learn words where this digraph is used as ow/ou. The spellings used have been added to those in the National Curriculum.

The letters ‘ow’ can be said two ways. If you’re ever unsure, try the word when it sounds like ow/o (no) then try it when it sounds like ow/ou (loud). This quiz will test you on words where the ‘ow’ sound is the same as when you say ‘owl’. Can you spell the missing words?
