Year 1 - Words ending with est

This 'Words ending with est' spelling quiz tests children on this extra syllable and suffix. It may be worth visiting the KS1 English quiz ‘Are you Faster or the Fastest’ so that the child learns when to use ‘er’ or ‘est’ as this quiz will only test them on ‘est’ spellings suggested in the National Curriculum.

Hopefully you know when to add an ‘er’ or ‘est’ suffix to a word. If not, have a look at the KS1 English quiz ‘Are you Faster or the Fastest’. This quiz will ask you to spell the missing ‘est’ words.
