This 'The Sound wr' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on spellings that have the silent ‘w’ sound. Most words that start with the silent ‘w’ are joined by the letter ‘r’ making it the ‘wr’ sound. When in the middle of a word the ‘w’ is on its own but still silent.
If you see ‘wr’ together - you don’t pronounce the ‘w’; you ignore it and just say ‘r’. Sometimes words have ‘w’ in the middle of them and the ‘w’ is ignored too. Poor ‘w’; it gets ignored a lot! Can you spell the missing ‘wr’ and silent ‘w’ words?
