  • Question 1

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
going
EDDIE SAYS
Great effort! Did you manage to spell the word correctly? Break up the spelling if you need to. Use your phonics and start with 'go' then add 'ing'.
  • Question 2

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
house
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? To spell the word 'house' you need to segment the word. Think about what it starts with. Clap each of the phonemes to help. The tricky bit is remembering the 'e' on the end!
  • Question 3

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
come
EDDIE SAYS
Did you remember? You needed to use the split digraph o-e. Remember you can clap each of the phonemes you hear to try and identify them correctly. Keep up the great effort!
  • Question 4

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
are
EDDIE SAYS
Now this is a tricky word to spell. It does not follow our rules of phonics. The best way to try to remember how it is spelt is to picture how it is spelt and keep practising writing it out. The more you practise writing it the better you will become at remembering the correct spelling.
  • Question 5

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
Look at my dad.
EDDIE SAYS
Remember you play the clip over and over. Clap the sounds in any words that you find tricky. Don't forget your capital letters and full stops!
  • Question 6

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
I am going home.
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? Keep practising, you can do this!
  • Question 7

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
I got to school last today.
EDDIE SAYS
The tricky words in this sentence is 'school' and 'last' but you can break it down to identify each phoneme. 'School' has 5 phonemes: s-c-h-oo-l. 'Last' you need to remember that there is no 'r' in the word. We can say it differently to how it is sometimes said. Great effort.
  • Question 8

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
Her brother made me laugh.
EDDIE SAYS
This can be tricky. But just take it one word at a time. Break down each word to identify the correct phonemes. 'Laugh' is a difficult word to spell. Sometimes coming up with a mnemonic for the word can help; Laugh And You Get Happy.
  • Question 9

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
Have you seen all the people?
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? This is a question so needs a question mark at the end of the sentence.
  • Question 10

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
I took eleven apples for my friends.
I took eleven apples for my friends!
EDDIE SAYS
Super effort! You may wish to finish this sentences with an exclamation mark as the person speaking is telling you about a lot of apples!
