Year 1 - Words ending with er

This 'Words ending with er' spelling quiz helps KS1 children look at the different ways the ‘er’ sound is said when not within a word. When at the end of a word, it makes an ah/uh sound instead. The spellings in this quiz have been taken from and added to those in the National Curriculum.

There is an ‘er’ sound, like in the word ‘term’. However, ‘er’ can go at the end of words. When ‘er’ is at the end of a word it makes more of an ah/uh sound. These missing words will all have the ‘er’ sound at the end of the word. Can you spell them?
