Here you will find the Key Stage 1 Common Excepetion words lists.

These are statuatory word lists of words which are set out in the National Curriculum. Children need to know if a word is one of their statutory spelling words, and should know that they must be spelled correctly. They do not need to know how to spell every one of the words off by heart (although this would be ideal of course, and children should aim to know how to spell the majority of these words), but they need to know to look up the spelling of these words, and to spell them correctly in their writing. This includes all the words from previous year groups as well.
