Year 2 - Changing the ending to ed

This 'Changing the ending to ed' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on words ending with ‘y’. When adding ‘ed’ to words ending with ‘y’ the letter changes to ‘i’ and then you add ‘ed’. There will be other spellings that end with ‘ed’ that are also suggested in the National Curriculum.

We add ‘ed’ to show something has happened in the past. You probably remember this from the quiz ‘Ending that Word’. If you add ‘ed’ to words ending in ‘y’ you change the ‘y’ for an ‘i’. Have a go at these spellings that end in ‘ed’.
