  • Question 1

Look at this:

seed 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
grew
EDDIE SAYS
Well done for trying this one! This can be tricky as both 'ue' and 'ew' make the same sound. The word we are looking at is 'grew'. Use the picture to help you.
  • Question 2

Look at this:

Boy flying a kite 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
flew
EDDIE SAYS
How did you do? In this example we are looking at the word 'flew'. Always look at the position of the digraph. Where does it appear in the word? Both 'ue' and 'ew' normally come at the end of a word. In this example it is the 'ew' digraph that is used. Keep going superstar!
  • Question 3

Look at this:

calender 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
Tuesday
EDDIE SAYS
Did you get it right? The word 'Tuesday' uses the 'ue' digrpah. This can be a tricky word to spell. Break it down into phonemes 'T-ue-s-d-ay'. You can do this!
  • Question 4

Look at this:

Goose 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
goose
EDDIE SAYS
Keep up the effort super star! The word we are looking at here is 'goose'. The sound comes in the middle of the word which means the 'oo' digraph is the correct one to use. Great effort! Try the next question!
  • Question 5

Look at this:

pen 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
drew
EDDIE SAYS
Did you pick the right one? In this example the 'ew' digraph is correct. Great effort! Keep going!
  • Question 6

Look at this:

crocodile 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
zoo
EDDIE SAYS
Are you starting to get the hang of this? The word 'zoo' is tricky as we do not normally see the 'oo' sound at the end of a word. Keep up the super effort!
  • Question 7

Look at this:

Children playing 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
threw
EDDIE SAYS
Always look at both options. Which one do you think looks correct? The word 'threw' is the correct option. It uses the 'ew' digraph. You can do this!
  • Question 8

Look at this:

magnify glass 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
clue
EDDIE SAYS
How did you do? In this example we are looking at the word 'clue'. Remember look at where the sound is positioned in the word. We can hear the sound in the end of the word which means it uses the digraph 'ue'. Nearly there now!
  • Question 9

Look at this:

 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
blew
EDDIE SAYS
Remember the digraph 'oo' normally comes in the middle of a word, whereas the 'ew' digraph comes at the end. In the word 'blew' we can hear the sound at the end of the word so it uses the 'ew' digraph. You have got this!
  • Question 10

Look at this:

 

 

Pick the correct spelling.

CORRECT ANSWER
rescue
EDDIE SAYS
Last question! The word 'rescue' has the 'ue' sound at the end. Remember we normally see the 'oo' phoneme in the middle of words. Great effort well done!
