Year 1 - The Sound ph

This 'Sound ph' spelling quiz helps KS1 children learn that this digraph makes an ‘ff’ sound. Furthermore, in long words with the ‘f’ sound, it is often represented by the ‘ph’ digraph.

The ‘ph’ sound is often used in long words that have an ‘f’ sound in them. This means short words like ‘fat’, ‘fit’ and ‘fast’ all begin with ‘f’ because they are short words. This quiz will ask you to spell words where the ‘f’ sound is spelt with ‘ph’. See how well you do!
