Common Exception Words

Common exception words are words we use frequently and are words where the usual spelling rule doesn't apply.

As children come across unfamiliar spelling and sound patterns in tricky words, their phonics knowledge won't always help them to sound out and read the word; such as the common exception words "sugar", "improve", "climb" and "because".
