My daughter is 4 years old and started reception full time in September. As she is August born I thought I would try and give her a bit of a headstart before starting school. I started her on the first 45 reception sight words. Everywhere I have looked has this same set of 45 words that reception children are taught by the end of the year.
Yesterday the school gave out a list of 60 "tricky words" which seem too hard for reception to me! They include words such as "right, before, should, only, where, live and because". I was thinking of talking to the teacher in case there has been some kind of mistake! I dont want to come across as a moaning mum but I dont understand why they are not starting with the standard 45 words. I have googled sight words and these kind of words come up for year 1 and 2!
Is anybody else's reception age child doing these 60 words??
These sight words??!!!!
