Phonics Exception & High Frequency Words

Exception & High Frequency Words for the Foundation Stage

Includes 37 Exception and High Frequency words.

The words have been ordered to ensure they are introduced at times that enable you to build upon children’s existing phonics knowledge (for example learning ‘as’ after children have learned the letters ‘a’ and ’s’ and learning ‘the’ after they have been introduced to the ‘th’ digraph).

This allows you to use the unusual sounds and spellings in exception words as a point of interest while also consolidating children’s prior learning.

Each set includes:

  • Word Slides including discussion prompts about using the words in spoken sentences
  • Word Line activities
  • Flashcards with sound symbols
  • Word Maker sheets

Guidance and example planning for the resources in this set is here.
