Learning focus: Tricky Word Slam
Tricky words are those that cannot be read using Phonics. These are sometimes referred to as common exception words. There are two lists of examples at the bottom of this page. Choose a small number (4-6) of tricky words and practise reading these with your child. Lay them out in a row. Say a tricky word and your child should try to beat you to it by ‘Slamming’ the correct word with their hand. Introduce new tricky words one at a time.
Challenge: Include a red herring. Say a word that isn’t in the pile – if children recognise this, they shout out ‘Red herring!’ and win a point. If they miss it, you win the point.

Have a fabulous half term week and I’ll look forward to seeing you all, one way or another, in Term 6.
