Word lists

Please find below a series of word lists that children should know/learn during their time at primary school. Ideally, many of the words that appear on the high frequency word lists would be learnt at infant school, although it is very common for many children entering junior school to still have a number of these to master.

Below the high frequency lists, you will find word lists for Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6. These are the word lists associated with the new curriculum for English coming into force in September 2014. They give an indication of the standard of spelling expected in these year groups.

As part of our homework timetable, we ask that children work on these words at home, starting from the first list if necessary.
