This 'Letters ier and iest' spelling quiz for KS1 children is an addition to the spellings learnt in the National Curriculum. Children should learn that for letters ending in ‘y’, the 'y' is changed to an ‘i’ when adding ‘er’ or ‘est’. These two groups of three letters are made up of different sounds and so should be recognised as letter patterns.
Hopefully, you know when to add ‘er’ or ‘est’ to a word. This quiz is going to test you on spellings that have had these suffixes (er/est) added to them. Take your time before you choose your answer.
