Year 1 - The Sound ear (heard)

This 'Sound ear (heard)' spelling quiz tests KS1 children on the other sounds made by this trigraph. To help you, think of the words ‘heard’ and ‘bear’ as these words show the two other possible ways to say ‘ear’. This spelling quiz will also show other words with the 'ear' trigraph that are also pronounced in different ways.

The trigraph ‘ear’ is sometimes pronounced like ‘ear’ – that part of the body on your face. However, sometimes it’s pronounced like ‘er’ or ‘air’. This quiz will test you on words with the 'ear' letters but the way the word is said will vary. See if you can spell the missing words.
