Year 1 - The Sound tr

This 'Sound tr' spelling quiz is an addition to the spellings suggested in the National Curriculum. Often, children think this sound is ‘ch’ or ‘sh’.

The ‘tr’ sound is made by combining the ‘t’ and ‘r’ letters. This sound can be used at the beginning of words or in the middle. It always follows a vowel or a ‘y’. See how many you know.
