Common Exception Words

There are many words which children are EXPECTED to be able to spell at different points in KS2.  These are known as common exception words.


The words in the Phase 3 list are the expectation for children in Year 3.  


The lists are a mixture of words children frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell, which may be due to exceptions to spelling rules, or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in a rare or unique way.
