Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

All words in English have at least one vowel in them.

A lot of words end in 'e', but there are not so many words ending in the other vowels.

Here are some of them:

 

banana

 

kiwi

 

tomato

 

emu

 

A lot of the words are the names of animals or food, and they have been borrowed from other languages.

 

In this worksheet you can practise reading and spelling some words that end in 'a', 'i', 'o' or 'u'.

Match these words ending in 'a' with their meanings.

 

Look carefully at the spellings as you will need them in later questions.
