Year 1 - The Sound ea (bead)
Write a short story and see if you spell every word correctly.

Year 1 - The Sound ea (bead)

This 'Sound ea (bead)' spelling quiz informs KS1 children of the other sound these two letters make. The ‘ea’ sound can make a sound like ‘eh’ as in ‘head’ but can also make the ‘ee’ sound, as in ‘bead’. This requirement of understanding is stated in the National Curriculum.

The letters ‘ea’ can make two different sounds; this test is on the ‘ee’ sound it makes – like in the word ‘bead’. Test your knowledge on words spelt with ‘ea’.
