Year 2 - Tricky words 5

This 'Tricky Words 5' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on words taken from the National Curriculum. All these words are tricky to spell because they are exceptions to the rules or consist of rarely-used sounds.

This quiz is on words that don’t necessarily follow sound patterns and so can’t be sounded out. Improve your spelling of tricky words in this quiz.
