Year 2 - Ending with ost and oll

This 'Ending with ost and oll' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on the spellings with words that end with these two sounds. These spellings are an addition to the curriculum and will be words that are used in Year 2 vocabulary.

Sometimes words end with ‘ost’ or ‘oll’. If you sound out ‘ost’, it’ll be ‘oh-st’ but actually this trigraph is pronounced ‘oe-st’. Sounding out ‘oll’ would be ‘o-ll’ but actually it is pronounced as ‘ole’. Can you find the missing words with these sounds in?
