Phonics and spelling

Phonics and spelling is a crucial part of year 1. The more children are able to practice their phonics skills at home the quicker they will progress. Below are some key websites that include games for differing reading levels for you to play with your children at home.

In year 1 children learn how to read and spell a range of common exception words - these are words that are common in reading and writing but they are not able to sound them out. 

Below are some links and images to help you practice phonics and spelling with your children.
