High Frequency Words (HFW)- these are words that the children will need to be able to recognise, read and spell by the end of KS1.

They are also known as 'tricky words' or 'sight words' as the children will need to learn how to read them by sight and memory as you cannot sound them out.

There are also other words the children need to learn in Years 1 and 2 and these are called Common Exception Words.

Please see the documents below for the HFW words and the Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Words.
