Spelling:  Graphemes
In the word 'buzz', the grapheme ‘zz’ only makes one sound.

Spelling: Graphemes

Time for a KS2 English spelling quiz! This one's all about graphemes - letters that make a single sound. English sounds can be spelled in different ways, and each spelling is a 'grapheme'. In 'buzz', 'zz' is a grapheme making one sound. Same goes for 'tch' in 'match'.

Test your English knowledge with this grapheme quiz. Remember, if a letter combo makes more than one sound, it's NOT a grapheme. If you don't ace it, no worries! Play again until you master graphemes and phonemes.
