Year 2 - Letters ei

This 'Letters ei' spelling quiz will test KS1 children on this sound. It is an addition to the spellings learnt in the National Curriculum. This sound is pronounced ‘aye’ like in the number ‘eight.’

If you ever see 'ei' together, it’s pronounced as ‘aye’. These spellings are a little tricky, so try and sound out the letters or look for the word that looks familiar. See how many of these you know. Good luck!
