Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

A lot of words end in the letters 'tch'.

 

watch

watch

 

dog

scratch

 

The letters 'tch' at the end of a word make the same sound as 'ch'.

It can be hard to know whether to put a 't' before the 'ch' or not, but there is a rule that can help.

 

If there is a short vowel sound just before the 'ch', then put in a 't' as well.

match

itch

 

Otherwise just use 'ch'.

reach

bench

(The vowel sound in 'bench' is short, but there is an 'nbetween the vowel and the 'ch', so you don't need to add a 't')

 

Of course, there are always exceptions to a rule, and here are three words that ought to have 'tch' but don't!

much

rich

such
