Year 1 - Plurals that end in es

Plurals that end in es informs KS1 children of the rule of adding this suffix to a noun. The National Curriculum requires Year 1 children to know how to spell the ‘iz’ sound when adding ‘es’ to a word to make it plural.

There is one box but if there are two, we would say two boxes. The ‘es’ letters makes an ‘iz’ sound but are spelt ‘es’. Test your knowledge on these ‘es’ plural words.
