The Black Cat graphemes make phonetic words. Please practise all the Black Cat sounds with your child. It is important that your child knows these sounds as this will help them with their reading and writing.
Here are all the Monster Phonics Graphemes
Common Exception Words or Tricky Words are words which cannot be sounded out easily. Below are the Common Exception Words for Year 1.
If possible, please print out this word mat to support your child's writing activities and spelling revision.
Number Bonds to 10
Number bonds to 10 are pairs of numbers that, when added together, give the number 10. Knowledge of number bonds will help your child with their addition and subtraction tasks. Please help your child to become familiar with their number bonds to 10.
Once your child is secure in their number bonds to 10 then please move on to number bonds to 20. Number bonds to 20 are pairs of numbers that, when added together, give the number 20.
As your child practises their number bonds, they will be able to recall them quickly and out of order.
