Bear and Animal Words

Bear Words and Animal Words


There are many words that your child has to learn to read that cannot be learnt through using phonics (letter sounds)

We call these words Bear Words and Animal Words.

The children are learning to read these by recognising them on a flashcard and by using the cards to make short sentences. 

When your child has a pack of Bear or Animal Words to learn at home, please help by showing the cards and asking them to remember the word on the card.

We test the children's progress at school and we will add new sets of words when they are ready.

Every little practice helps them improve.

The children are doing really well and are keen to move through the different sets of words.
