High Frequency Words

High Frequency Words

Similarly to the sounds, these are organised into Phases. Some of the words are 'tricky' which means the children are not able to use their phonic knowledge to read them. The other words are 'decodable' so children can apply their phonic knowledge to decode them. We explain to the children that they should 'train their brains' to remember these words so please draw your child's attention to high-frequency words when you are sharing books.

The high frequency words for all the phases are below.
