Spelling: ie or ei?
This KS2 English spelling quiz takes a look at words spelled using either 'ie' or 'ei'. You might have heard the spelling rule: 'I before E, except after C'. This rule is very useful for helping us to decide whether to spell a word with 'ie' or 'ei', especially when you also know this exception: always use 'ei' for the 'ay' sound (as in 'eight').
Many people struggle with these spellings as there are quite a few exceptions. Take your time and practise this quiz more than once to get used to words with 'ie' or 'ei'.
See how well you can spell 'ie' and 'ei' words with this quiz - but watch out for the exceptions!
