Where can I find the KS1 'key words' list?

Title says it all really - DS is in Reception and the school sends home the 'Key Words' which I think re aligned with the ORT books, but possibly just generally to KS1 & 2.

But I keep losing them, so would like to find a comprehensive list...

Any links anywhere?

It's on another thread somewhere!! At least one, maybe 2 threads in fact.

You'll need to do some creative searching of the archives

ds1 had a rainbow of them. very annoying it was too
also, try the national curriculum website. or bbc ks1 site.

Thankyou! Soupdragon - in my defence, I DID search the archives first, but clearly haven't got your 'old hand' expertise

Very useful thread - pity the DfES site doesn't give you the words they're supposed to know in Yr3! Anyone?

I had them on fridge magnets from Urchin. Don't think they still do them but I know I've seen them in a catalogue recently...

Out of curiosity, are those Y3, 4 and 5 words reading words or spelling words? Or both? Just wondering, as the Y5 words seem a little basic for reading (and possibly even for spelling). DS1 is in Y2 so haven't got there yet, but my mum gave us the KS1 HF words fridge magnets when he was in Reception and DS2 is using them now.
DS1's previous school actively discouraged parents from getting hold of the whole list of 45 Reception words, as they were very keen on 'controlling' when a child was ready for new words....Mmmmm.
