High Frequency words
There are 45 Reception High Frequency words your child needs to be able to read by the end of Reception. Some of these words are ‘green words’ and you can sound them out to read them and some of them are ‘red words’ ones that they just need to recognise.
Each week your child will be bringing home 3 new words to learn to read. Encourage your child to use their ‘Fred talk’ to sound out the word. Once they can sound out the words, they should begin to recognise them by sight.
For example your child will say each letter c – a - t and blend these sounds together to say cat.
For example the word the cannot be sounded out, tell your child the word and keep revisiting it so they store the word in their memory.
