Year 1 Common Exception Words

Spelling in the National Curriculum- Year 1

Your child is learning spellings set out in the National Curriculum this year. Phonic knowledge will underpin the teaching of common spelling ‘rules’ which will be taught every week. However, many words in the English language seem to follow no pattern – these are known as ‘exception words’.

These words are a mixture of words which pupils frequently use in their writing but can often misspell.

If you would like to work on helping your child practice these spellings at home, your child will benefit greatly.

Thank you for your continued support
