Year 1 - The Sound ie (tie)

This 'Sound ie' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on the sound made with words like ‘tie’. The spellings in this test have been taken from and added to the ones in the National Curriculum.

Sometimes the letters ‘ie’ make an ‘igh’ sound. We say, when two vowels go walking – the first one does the talking. That means with ‘ie’ you ignore the ‘e’ sound and just say ‘I’. That rule applies to some ‘ie’ words. Test your knowledge on spellings with ‘ie’ in them.
