Year 1 - Magic e with u

Magic e with u introduces KS1 children to the long u vowel sound. The spellings in this quiz have been taken from the National Curriculum.

A magic e at the end of a word changes the vowel from a short sound, like in ‘tub’ to the long vowel sound seen in the word ‘tube’. Test your knowledge on these magic e with u words.
