Year 1 - The Sound v
The WAVES rolled into the COVE.

Year 1 - The Sound v

This 'Sound v' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on spellings that end with the ‘v’ sound, which is always followed by an ‘e’. These words have been taken from and added to those suggested in the National Curriculum.

The ‘v’ sound can start a word, like ‘van’. When there is a ‘v’ sound at the end of the word, the letter ‘e’ will follow. Therefore, any time you hear a word end in ‘v’ it will actually end with ‘ve’. Can you spell these missing words?
