:: Closing the gaps in spelling at Key Stage 2 ::
This brand-new course has been developed in response to raised expectations for spelling in the current curriculum. It aims to support Key Stage 2 teachers to gain a deeper understanding of the spelling system and how to prioritise next steps for individuals, in order to accelerate their progress and confidence. 'Each child needs adults who take the time to understand and personalise provision, through quality first teaching, to help overcome barriers to learning, through the systematic application of what works well.' Narrowing the Gaps: from data analysis to impact - the golden thread (DfE). The course explores the issue of how to manage differentiating provision in an increasingly demanding classroom environment. During the day, we will unpick the aspects of spelling that often hold pupils back and we will then look at approaches to support pupil's understanding in these areas. A range of strategies and resources for planning, teaching and assessment will be provided.
The aims of the course are to:
  • support teachers to plan spelling effectively to meet the needs of all pupils and accelerate their progress
  • take away practical approaches to supporting struggling spellers in Key Stage 2
  • develop the ability to effectively assess the gaps in pupil's learning and know how to address these
  • gain a deeper understanding of the spelling system and how to prioritise next steps for individuals in order to accelerate progress
  • understand how to plan for the whole class whilst simultaneously meeting the needs of pupils with minor or significant gaps
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
