    Random question but is ‘what’ a phonic exception and if so what year is it taught in? I tried googling it but putting ‘what’ into google isn’t helpful! Thanks

    Hi Cherabell, 'what' is a tricky word taught in phase 4, so late Foundation Stage normally. I like to joke with my class and read it as 'w-hat'. They laugh and realise how silly that is. Google 'phonics tricky words' and you will find lists for each phase.
