This week, please revise these tricky words ready for a test on Thursday 23rd November 2023 (a day early due to trip).

For those children learning 2 or 3 words, please practise the red words.

Help at home

Try a little practice every day: 10 minutes at a time should be enough. You might want to focus on one word at a time.

It’s a good idea to play games to make the learning of phonics more fun for your child: how about bingo or matching up games? You could also use the words as part of a treasure hunt: hide five tricky words around the house and ask your child to find them from a list, ticking them off as they search.

Display the tricky words at home, such as on the wall or on the fridge. This can help your child to understand that the words are important.
