|Set 6||Set 7|
The graphemes encountered are shown below:
Tricky and High Frequency Words
High frequency words are common words, words that appear very often in written texts. They are a mixture of decodable words (words that can be sounded out) and tricky / exception words (words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way, which means the words have to be learned and recognised by sight).
It is really important that children learn how to read these words as they will make up a large proportion of the words they will be reading in everyday texts.
The phoneme spotter stories are a fantastic way of practising different phonemes. The story will have lots of words with the focus phoneme.
