Word Study Spelling
Teach Spelling using Word Study.
Our programme looks at the research behind the teaching of spelling and will show you how you can use this to support children’s learning. In Word Study lessons, pupils are taught skills which enable them to learn how to learn about spelling, rather than remembering lists. They are then supported in using the words they’ve learned to spell in a variety of contexts, providing vocabulary enrichment activities and developing skills which complement reading, writing and grammar teaching.
We share a detailed programme of study to follow and will give you plans and resources for teaching. There will be lots of opportunity to work collaboratively with others, sharing ideas to make the teaching of spelling work in a practical way in your own classroom.
This series of workshops will develop teachers' subject knowledge and the approach to teaching around the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching of Mathematic’s 5 big ideas for mastery. Topics covered include mathematical thinking, coherence, variation, representation and fluency. The final session will embed the focus of theory into lesson planning.
