Investigate Words with Silent Letters: 'w' or 'h'

In this worksheet, students practise reading and spelling words with a silent 'w' or 'h'.

'Investigate Words with Silent Letters: 'w' or 'h'' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   English

Curriculum subtopic:   Spelling: Silent Letters

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

Some words have letters that we don't pronounce (say out loud) when we read them. These are called silent letters.

 

The word sword has a silent 'w'.

 

The word rhino has a silent 'h'.

 

We just have to learn which words have silent letters, but it might be helpful to remember that many words with a silent 'w' have the letter 'r' straight afterwards.

 

Read these words carefully as you will need to spell them correctly in this worksheet. They all have either a silent 'w' or a silent 'h' in them.
