This week we have been concentrating on reading real and alien words. Real words are words that make sense. Alien words are words that are nonsense words. They have a picture of an alien next to them to help us identify that they are nonsense words. When reading these words, it is important to look really carefully at the word that is written as they may look similar to another word, for example, jimp and jump. The children need to read the word exactly as it is written.
