Here are the Common Exception words for Year 1 Children These are words that don't follow phonic/spelling rules so children just need to memorise the correct spellings. There is lots to do with these words as well as practising spelling them. Children can place these words in sentences. Sentences that start with a capital letter and end with a full stop and, most importantly, make sense.
As you can see this term we have been looking at Traditional Tales. To develop the children's writing style we work on creating exciting character descriptions to describe characters or even try to retell the story. When the children work at these activities we always strive for sentences to make sense, contain the correct punctuation and even include exciting describing words and sentence openers. Here are some word mats and pictures for the children to describe Jack and the Beanstalk character.
