Join this workshop to develop your repertoire of strategies for supporting pupils to learn, remember and apply their spelling knowledge.
For spelling teaching to be highly effective, practitioners must have a secure understanding not only of how to teach spelling but also of how to support pupils in learning, remembering and applying the spelling concepts that have been taught. This interactive online workshop will explore a range of proven, effective strategies and approaches for developing pupils’ retention of spelling knowledge and their automaticity in applying spelling strategies when writing.
This online session will:
• unpick the research around the science of learning, remembering and retrieving
• look at proven approaches for supporting pupils to learn, remember and apply spelling knowledge
• explore practical games and activities to practise, retrieve and apply concepts with pupils
This session is suitable for: KS1 and KS2 Teachers delivering spelling; TAs supporting the teaching of spelling; English Subject Leaders looking to develop a whole school approach to spelling.
You will receive in advance all the handouts and resources for you to fully participate and, during the sessions, participation tools will be used such as practical activities, breakout groups for discussion and opportunities for questions throughout.
