Year 2 - Tricky words 3
Certain words won't play by the rules and need to be learned off by heart. Here are ten to test you.

Year 2 - Tricky words 3

This 'Tricky Words 3' spelling quiz uses words taken from the National Curriculum and tests KS1 children on these spellings. All these words are considered tricky because they break the usual sound patterns.

When spelling, many words can be sounded out but there are also lots of words that can’t be broken into sound groups. This quiz is going to test you on those words that are exceptions to the rules. Can you spell the missing words?
