Year 1 Spellings

Year 1 spelling words to help children. Includes common, tricky & exception words. National curriculum friendly.

Year 1 Spelling Worksheets

As part of the national curriculum, Year 1 children will be tested on their spelling of high frequence words and common exception words, sometimes called 'tricky words' or 'red words'.

In a typical national curriculum spelling test, a teacher will read out 10-20 words. They will read the word out and then give an example use of the word within a sentence. Children will then be expected to spell the word correctly on their answer paper.

Below are our free Year 1 Spellings, a spelling list of over 800 words to help your child. This list includes the words specified in the national curriculum, high frequence words, common exception words and hundreds more selected by Exam Ninja.

This is easily the most comprehensive Year 1 Spelling List available. You won't find this list on Twinkl!

Our advice is to carefully work through these Year 1 spellings. Try to understand how the words are spelt and try the “look, cover, write and check” strategy to master them.
