Year 2 - Changing the ending to er

This 'Changing the ending to er' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on words ending with ‘y’. When adding ‘er’ to words ending with ‘y’ the letter changes to ‘i’ and then you add ‘er’. There will also be other spellings that end with ‘er’ that have been suggested in the National Curriculum.

After doing the KS1 English quiz ‘Adjectives - Adding 'er' and 'est'’ you’ll now know when to use ‘er’ at the end of a word. This quiz will test you on how to spell words that end with ‘er’. Can you spell the missing words?
