Overview of training:
This course is designed to support Primary School staff with the teaching of spellings using phonics as one of the main strategies, as outlined in the DFE Letters and Sounds document used by many schools in Key Stage One.
Many teachers lack confidence in the application of phonics, yet this is key to bridging the gap between Key Stage One and Two, to developing an understanding of spelling and why words are written as they are.
This course supports staff in the teaching and learning of spellings whilst using phonics in everyday writing. It explores the vocabulary used in phonics; how to articulate the sounds; the four parts to a daily spelling session; games, activities and investigations; the many and varied ways to spell different sounds and making the correct choices (GPCs); and how to help children understand the mechanics of spelling using morphology and etymology.
