  • I have been using the alphabetical version of this for a year and it is very useful for my Y2s. I would like to add a few words (just because they aren't on the CE list doesn't mean children don't frequently ask for eg 'when' or 'why') but the editable list is not alphabetical.... could it be, please?

    • Hi SingingSusie,

      Thanks for asking about other versions of this resource. Below the pink 'Download' button in the 'Alternative versions' box there are two editable versions. The second editable version (next to 'Main') is in alphabetical order. Please do let us know if there's anything else that we can do for you! :)

  • Please can a Portuguese/English version be made?

    • Hi PrincessLaLa,
      Thanks for commenting! I can see this being a useful addition - I'll ask our translation team to take at providing this translation. Because these requests require specialist input, they do take longer than other requests, but we will be back in touch if we can provide this :) In the meantime, there is an editable version available in the 'Alternative versions' box if you are able to provide your own translation. I hope this helps!

    • Write a reply...Thanks. Unfortunately no I cannot provide my own translation. Please let me know when it is available.

  • Hi - great to have the editable one as I was putting it into cursive font but there is a glitch with the Year 1 heading - everything else can be edited but that heading refuses to budge! Any chance of having a quick look at it? Thanks!

  • Thank you for making this resource editable.  I have been able to use it with my SEN children in Key Stage 2 without making them feel they are working below their peers.  I have deleted the Year 1 and 2 titles.  Many Thanks.

  • Thank you for this fab resource. Is this available for the year 3 common exception words? I'd like to laminate them and stick them to the children's tables so that the words are available all of the time!
    Thank you!

  • Hi is there any chance you could do a word mat with the words without the Year 1/2 on the top. It's just I'm in year 3 and think it doesn't do the children's self esteem any good if they see that.

    Thanks :)

    • Hi gjhk19,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      I can certainly ask our resource team if we can do this for you. Would you like the resource as it is but on the different coloured backgrounds you have referred to(so you will have 3 word mats) or do you require different areas of the same word mat to be different colours?
      I look forward to your reply!
      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

  • Hi this is a great resource. I want to use it in my Year 2 class and send it home but I was wondering if you could possibly make an alphabetical version with the Year 1 and 2 words mixed and in cursive? So they can find the letter and then search through all of the words for the one they need. My email is alexandra_grover@hotmail.co.uk Please and thank you!

  • evening, could you please send me a copy too that you have made for ryder45? It would also be useful if it was available in cursive, with the alternative f that is not looped at the top but looped at the bottom. Thank you. If you could send it to my personal email since this is easier to access/print from at home.

    Would it possible to have the words in a Powerpoint version so that we can display them on a whiteboard.
    Thanks

    • Hi becs08,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      Before I ask our teacher team about this for you, I was wondering if you could provide a few more details about the resource you're looking for? Were you wanting all of the words together on one page, or them separating in a particular way on the PowerPoint slides?

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

      , Nov 12th
  • Could the year 1 and year 2 words be separate and in alphabetical order, this would make it so much easier when assessing the children's writing.

  • Maybe a common exception word card with the list of year 1 words that can be put in the pencil pots and used as prompts for them? (Not a4 size?) - Maybe something we can print on red paper and laminate - as we use RWI and tricky words are called red words?
