Get ready for a KS2 English spelling quiz all about unstressed vowels! These are sneaky letters that are hard to hear in words, especially in long ones. In polysyllabic words (words with more than one syllable), some syllables get more stress than others. Unstressed syllables all sound the same, like the 'e' in 'the', the 'e' in 'carpet' and the 'a' in 'zebra'. They all sound identical. Reading a lot can help you remember how words are spelled, so let's have fun practising!
