The children in year 1 will be learning red word (high frequency words) as they work their way through the Read Write Inc phonics programme. The will learn how to recognise them as they are reading alongside learning to spell them accurately.
Alongside learning red words the children will be given weekly spellings that are specifically linked to the story that they will be reading that week. They will practise them daily in school and will also take them home to practise. We will send these home with the children in Autumn 2. See below an example of the spellings that will go home.
