Year 2 - The Sound or after w

This 'The Sound or after w' spelling quiz identifies the pattern when these letters are combined. It tests KS1 children on this sound. The words in this spelling quiz have been taken from and added to those in the National Curriculum.

The letters ‘or’ mostly make the sound that’s in the word ‘born’. However, when the letters ‘or’ follow a ‘w’ it changes how it is said and makes an ‘er’ sound. This quiz will test you on spellings where the ‘or’ follows a ‘w’. Can you spell the missing words?
