:: Mastering spelling at Year 2: accuracy, rules and patterns ::
Outline
Teaching or supporting pupils with Year 2 age-related phonics and spelling? National Curriculum 2014 introduces Year 2 pupils to some important changes in the way they think about phonics for spelling. Led by experts, the day unpicks key subject knowledge through using practical ideas and hands-on activities. Delegates will leave feeling confident to deliver effective teaching and support for Year 2 phonics and spelling. The course will prepare delegates for the spelling element of both the GAPs test and writing teacher assessment. The activities are also powerful for those supporting struggling older spellers who need to become more accurate in their spelling. Those who have attended Phase 5-6 training before the 2014 curriculum was implemented will also benefit from this course, as some aspects are new into Year 2 and some are no longer necessary.
Outcomes:
By attending the course, participants will:
  • develop subject knowledge in relation to meeting Year 2 age-related expectations
  • explore the approaches needed for the transition from phonic into early morphological knowledge
  • deepen understanding of planning, delivery and assessment
  • refresh strategies for application and embedding of skills
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Subject Leaders
  • Teaching Assistants
Being delivered by Kirsten Snook and Michelle Nicholson
