Year 2 - Soft g
Improve your spelling of the letter G.

Year 2 - Soft g

This 'Soft g' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on spellings where the ‘g’ sound is not ‘ger’ but ‘jer’. These spellings are an addition to those in the National Curriculum but are words Year 2 children should know how to spell and will use in their speech and writing.

The letter ‘g’ can make two sounds: a hard g like in the word ‘grass’ or a soft g like in the word ‘gem’. This quiz is going to test you on spellings with the soft g sound. See how well you do.
