Read, Write, Inc.
Our daily Read Write Inc. sessions lasts for 1 hour. We review our letter sounds everyday and use this to help us with our reading and writing.
High Frequency Words ("Tricky Words")
High frequency words are common words that appear very often in written texts.
They are a mixture of words that can be decoded using phonics and tricky/exception words (words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way, which means the words have to be learned and recognised by sight).
Please see the lists below so that you can help your child at home. In Spring term, we will be focussing on being able to read all of the words. In the Summer term, we will be focussing on writing these words and using them in sentences.
