Year 2 - a + sk, ss and st
Shall we BASK in the LAST of the sun?

Year 2 - a + sk, ss and st

This ‘a + sk, ss and st’ spelling quiz informs KS1 children that when you say words with ask/ass/ast the ‘a’ sound is an ‘ar’ sound instead and is written as such. This Year 2 spelling quiz will test children on these words.

The letter ‘a’ is pronounced ‘ah’ but if it comes before ‘sk/ss/st’ it changes to ‘ar’. This quiz will ask you to spell words where the ‘a’ sound has been changed to ‘ar’. Can you spell the missing word?
