Year 1 - The Sound ay

This 'Sound ay' spelling quiz helps KS1 children learn that this sound is always at the end of a word. These tasks will test their knowledge on the ‘ay’ spellings mentioned in the National Curriculum.

The ‘ay’ sound will nearly always be at the end of the word. One exception to this is if you are adding ‘ed’ or ‘s/es’ to show tense. Test your spelling skills with the ‘ay’ sound.
