Reception Keywords

Below are the 45 Reception keywords that your child should be able to read by the end of the Reception year. Most of the words your child will be able to 'sound out' to read but the words highlighted in yellow are 'tricky words' that cannot be sounded out. Your child must be able to recognise and read these words confidently.


If you would like a new copy of the Reception keywords

to use at home, please ask your child's class teacher.
