Reception Keywords

Below are the Reception 45 keywords that your child should be able to read by the end of the Reception year. They are broken down into 9 sets from the easiest to the hardest. Most of the words your child will be able to 'sound out' to read but the words highlighted in yellow are the 'tricky words' and your child has to be able to recognise and read these confidently.
