This is Unit 3 – Year Three and Four (age 7-9 years) – the third module for ‘Teaching Spellings including Phonics in the Primary School’ to show how the use of phonics and word knowledge underpins good spelling understanding.
This set of PowerPoints takes you through the subject knowledge for teaching spellings in Year Three and Four making links to vowels, consonants, syllables, graphemes, suffixes and prefixes. It shows the reasons why words are spelt that way and how word study can help us to remember spelling patterns. It consists of 21 modules, one for each spelling element of the National Curriculum. Each module has a set of linked animated PowerPoint Slides. These slides can be used either as subject knowledge for staff, in the classroom for children, or both. They are editable to change things as you wish.
