Reception Class Spelling List

The current ‘Butterfly’ words are High Frequency Words taken from the First 100 most commonly used words. These are given in the EYFS first as reading words then 

termly, as spelling words. To make these words more child friendly many schools put the words onto shapes such as Robots, Snails, Tractors, Butterflies etc as a way to split 

up the words and to which the group of words are referred.
