Click on the links below to see our learning so far:
By the end of the Foundation Stage, your child should have been able to read the 45 Reception high frequency words by sight.
Some of these words are decodable, and can be broken down into the phonetic sounds your child has learned. Other words are "tricky" can cannot be phonetically sounded out, these words can only be learned by sight recognition. This requires regular practise.
Following on from the 45 Reception high frequency words, are a further 200 which children are to be able to read by sight by the end of Key Stage 1. The sooner your child can recognise these words, the more fluent they will become as a reader, and their enjoyment and love of reading will be able to blossom.
The keywords we provide for you to share with your children are available below:
Please remember to practise these by playing a fun game every night.
In Year 1 children are expected to spell all 45 of the Reception high frequency words correctly.
These have been part of your child's spelling tests and will be revisited frequently.
Once Key Stage 1 high frequency words have been learned by sight, these too will then be expected to be spelt correctly within the children's independent writing.
Lists of these words are available in the Keyword section above.
Weekly spellings will include a mix of high frequency words and words which give children the opportunity to practise the new phonic sounds they have been learning in class.
You can see the spelling lists below.
I encourage you to use these at home to revisit previous weeks and look ahead to prepare your child:
