These words all have silent letters when spoken. How many do you know?

Year 2 - The Silent Spelling Review

The Silent Spelling Review will quiz KS1 children on a mixture of spellings that have silent/unspoken letters. All words have been taken from the sound lessons suggested in the National Curriculum.

If you’ve completed all our quizzes then you’ll know that often, words have letters in them that you don’t hear - they are silent. This quiz is going to test you on spellings that have silent letters in them. Do your best.
