Year 1 - The Sound ur

This 'Sound ur' spelling quiz teaches KS1 children words with that sound. The letters ‘ur’ make the same sound as that made from ‘er’ and ‘ir’. The words in this quiz have been taken from and added to those in the National Curriculum.

The sound ‘ur’ can be placed anywhere within a word. Words can begin with this sound and it can be in the middle or end of a word. Can you spell the missing ‘ur’ words?
