Reading Tricky Words
We have put together a video collection of words that the children will be learning to read by sight - they should be able to read these words instantly without using their phonics skills, or breaking it into sounds. The idea is that they see it and say it.
These words are those that the children will come across a lot in their reading so please help them to read them as quickly and confidently as possible with lots of practice. We often refer to them as tricky words in school so that the children are reminded they are either words that they cannot use their early phonics strategies to read e.g. all or that they should now be trying to recognise without using phonics e.g. back.
