Tricky Words

Phase 2 and 3 (taught in Reception)

Tricky Words

As ‘Tricky Words’ are words we learn from sight, we tell children to remember them AND TO NOT use their sounds or sound buttons.

The picture above shows the ‘Tricky Words’ that we use in Jet Black.

Phase 2 tricky words are in yellow.

Phase 3 tricky words are in blue.

At the end of Jet Black, your child needs to be able to read the ‘Tricky Words’: he, she, we, me, be, was, my, you, her, they, all, are, and to spell the ‘Tricky Words’ the, to, I, no, go.

Phase 4 (taught in Year 1)

Children need to be able to read the 'Tricky Words': some, one, said, come, do, so, were, when, have, there, out, like, little and what and to spell the 'Tricky Words': he, she, we, me, be, was, my, you, her, they, all and are.
