This week, the children need to revise some of the tricky words previously learnt.

‘Tricky words’ are words that cannot easily be decoded (‘sounded out’ and read). This is because some of the sounds in the words are spelled in an unusual way. It is important for children to be able to read these words as they are among the most common words in English.

Our Super Spelling Strategies has lots of ideas to encourage and engage your child to learn spellings. There’s no one best way to learn spellings, so it’s worth trying out the various ideas contained in the leaflet. Some you and your child will like, some you and your child may not – give them all a go!
