    I've heard of kids knowing their "colour" words, but haven't heard of it called the magic100

    We do Jolly Phonics at our school. Jolly Phonics contains some sight words too. All schools would do sight words of one kind or another, they just may be dressed up differently.

    Yes ours were never introduced as magic 100 words, only M100-800 words.

    In WA they didn't use the M100 words at all. Mostly Jolly Phonics or phonics+sight words.

    In most Vic schools the M100 are big and its all about what colour you are on. Seems quite competitive to me compared to what I was used to in WA. The Vic school I'm at now use THRASS (phonics based) a lot.

    Most schools would use some form of sight words, or known as high-frequency reading words. Usually the top 100 words would be learned in prep. But its really important to have a phonics program in combination with sight words - a school should use both together.

    @Stretched we just did the kindy parent info night last night and DS does THRASS as well ( they gave us the chart last night) and the 100 sight words , it sounds like a great programme - how do you find it? ( it's all totally new to us!)

    I am stunned that schools still do THRASS. We talked about it at a staff meeting earlier this year - our principal suggested there is almost no long term evidence to suggest that it's an effective program, especially compared to more recent phonics programs.

    Really, as well, the sight words are the sight words, whichever way they are dressed up.
