As you will have noticed last week, our spelling words are now linked to the letter sounds that the children are learning in their phonics, with some addition High Frequency Words (HFWs)
This week's phonic linked spelling word list: (Blending and Segmenting Set 11)
This week's High Frequency word list: (High Frequency Words Set 12)
Blending and Segmenting sets - these are designed to be cut up and shuffled each time you use them so children don't learn them by rote as children quickly tend to do. First your child needs to be able to sound out and blend the words independently. There is more information on blending and segmenting within the guidance document for parents in Letters and Sounds Phase 3 (see phonics).
High Frequency Word Flashcard sets - these are also designed to be cut up and used as flashcards to help teach your child by recognition the high frequency words. Your child needs to be able to recognise these independently, without sounding out.
As well as using the flashcards you can support your child to practise their spelling words using 'Look, Write, Cover, Check' as they have been throughout Year 1.
