Year 1 - The Sound ue
At the funfair, we had to QUEUE for most of the rides.

Year 1 - The Sound ue

This 'Sound ue' spelling quiz will test KS1 children on this digraph. All the spellings have been taken from and added to those in the National Curriculum. To help you, think of the word ‘due’ and know that this sound is pronounced like the alphabet name for ‘u’.

If a word ends with a u/ue/ew sound it is likely to be shown be either ‘ue’ or ‘ew’. This quiz will be looking at words with the ‘ue’ sound in them. Can you spell the missing words?
