On Friday a little brown evenlope of ‘tricky words’ (words that do not follow the phonetic rules) was sent home in book bags. These are words that the children need to learn off by heart to help with their reading and writing. We would love your help in getting them to practise recognising these words by making it into a little memory game or competition and seeing how many they can get. They could also test you! Or they could try and spot them when they are reading. Ideally they should practise reading and writing the words. Most importantly it should be a positive event, rather than forcing them to practise if they are tired. Thanks for your help!
