Year 1 - Magic e with i

Magic e with i tests KS1 children’s skills using the ie/igh sound through magic e. The words tested in this quiz are suggested in the National Curriculum.

When there is an e at the end of a word, it changes the vowel into what we call a long vowel sound. The word ‘bit’ goes from ‘i’ to 'bite' making it sound more like ‘igh’. Test your knowledge on these magic e with i words.
