KS2 English Quiz
Spelling:  -le
Sandal is spelled with an 'al'.

Spelling: -le

This KS2 English spelling quiz will challenge you on words ending in le, el and al. Are angels and angles the same? Hopefully your teacher has never asked you to measure the angels in a triangle! Many, many English words end in '-le' or 'el', and some end in '-al'. Knowing the difference will make your writing legible, sensible and easy to read.

Take these three words as an example: candle, panel and sandal. They all have the same-sounding end, but each one has a different spelling. There aren't any rules to follow for these words, so it's a case of learning them over and over until you know for sure how to spell them.
