Letter Formation rhymes

Click to learn the Tricky Words by listening to the song



These are all the tricky words that children will need to learn during their Reception year. These words can't be sounded out and need to be recognised by sight. It is a great idea to write them out and have them dotted around the house for children to practice.


We don't follow the Jolly Phonics programme, but these the rhymes they use. They are quite catchy and help children to remember the sounds.
