This KS2 English spelling quiz looks at the letters 'igh'. Light, sight and fright are spelled with a 'gh', but they are silent letters. Many familiar English words use the spelling 'igh' for the 'long i' sound (as in the word 'sight'). It may seem strange now and you may have been told that the 'gh' is 'silent'. Several hundred years ago, English people pronounced the 'gh' in words like 'night'. The pronunciation changed over time, but the spelling stayed the same.
You may find learning to spell boring - but it's an important skill in English. You will have more chance of getting a job if you can spell, so keep on practising.
Luckily, most of these words are fairly easy to remember - see if you can, by taking this '-igh' quiz.
