Phonics – Reception

Today’s new tricky word is – was

Before you learn it, practise all of our tricky words so far. You could try some of these ideas:

  • Write your tricky words with magnetic letters
  • Stick your tricky words onto skittles or bottles and see if you can bowl a ball to each tricky word
  • Hide your tricky words around your house and then go on a hunt to find them all!

Then, write our new tricky word in rainbow colours and try to include it in a sentence. E.g. I was eating my lunch.


Phonics – Year 1

Learn your next tricky word today by referring to the list at the top of this page.

Write it in lots of rainbow colours and then write a sentence or two that includes your new tricky word today.

You could also practise the tricky words you already know by using one of the activities in the reception phonics section today.
