Year 1 - The End Sound ff

The End Sound ff helps KS1 children learn spellings that end in ‘ff’. The spelling rule is outlined in the National Curriculum and states that Year 1 children should know when to use this sound.

If a word ends in a ‘f’ sound, it is most likely going to end with two of that letter: ‘ff’. Normally if the vowel sound before it is short, like an ‘uh’ sound, the next letters will be ‘ff’.
