Spelling the long vowel sound /ī/: i-e, igh, y, ie

We have listed all the common spellings for igh and ie but there are too many for the others for us to include them. So, if in doubt, check with a dictionary.

How is the long i sound spelt in these words?

Remember, if it uses the split digraph i-e there will be a letter in between!

Work out which letters are missing.

Type the whole word:

I can't wait to dr___ my new car.
The loud bang gave me a fr___t.
Birds fl___ high in the sky.
My new boots are too t___t.
Please wr___ to me when you go away.
We'll have bacon and fr___d eggs.
Jane had a big bite of the plum p___.
The w___ on the plug is loose.
Two ships were sunk in the t___phoon.
I need a repl___ by the weekend.
I have a sl___t pain in my neck.
Will Jeff inv___ us to his party?
