Year 2 - The Sound a in ‘wallet’

This 'The Sound a in wallet’ spelling quiz tests KS1 children on spellings that have this sound, which is similar to that in the word ‘hot’. These words have been taken from the National Curriculum’s recommended spelling list for children in Year 2.

If there is an au/o sound after letters ‘qu’ or ‘w’ it is shown by the letter ‘a’. This quiz will ask you for words where the ‘a’ sound makes the same as in the word ‘wallet’. Can you spell the missing words?
