Year 2 - J, g or dge?

This 'J, g or dge' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on these letters and trigraph that sound the same but are used to spell different words. All the words have been taken from the National Curriculum.

If a word begins with the g/j sound it will never be with the ‘dge’ letters. These three letters are only used at the end of a word. However ‘j’ and ‘g’ can be at the beginning of a word. All these missing words will have these sounds in them; can you spell them?
