Common exception words are words that do not follow the common phonetic spelling rules children learn in Year 1 and Year 2. These are also called tricky words or sight words as you must learn to recognise them, and can't sound them out. They aren't decodable using the normal rules and letter-sounds in phonics.

I would like you to practise these IN ADDITION to any words sent home by the class teacher.  There a list to learn for each week this half term. The children will not be tested on them but their reading and writing will most definitely improve if the children know them.
