Year 2 Phonics

Wednesday 28 June 2023

This half term we have been focussing on spelling tricky words. ‘Tricky words’ are words that are spelt differently to how they are spoken.  For example ‘was’ is a tricky word because it sounds like it should be spelt ‘woz’.

During daily phonics and reading sessions we practise saying our tricky words and spelling them. We also put the words into different types of sentences such as statements, questions, commands and exclamatives.

In today’s session, we focussed on Phase 5 tricky words, (set 4). See some of our sentences below!
