Teaching Spellings using Phonics – live with The Teach Hub via Zoom.

The Teach Hub has worked hard to evolve to the current online climate, and we now offer online courses for ‘Teaching Primary Spellings using Phonics’ via the Zoom Platform. This course focuses on the subject knowledge needed to teach spellings that are linked to phonics. We look at short and long vowels, syllables, consonants, etymology and morphology, affixes and how spelling patterns are formed from Year 1 – Year 6. This is a course that considers the foundations of spelling rules and phonic knowledge that are suitable for any age range.

This course is open to any Primary School Teacher, Teaching Assistant, HLTA or anyone who is interested in spellings.  

Each delegate will also receive the materials from the course as PowerPoint slides and some linked resources, including our phonic mats for Year 1- Year 6, via a password-protected website link.

Any schools that require ‘Spelling using Phonics’ training from EY to Y6 for their whole staff, please get in contact via so that we can arrange this separately for you.

If any of my teacher friends need any support for spelling, I can’t recommend this course enough (produced by a specialist teacher/consultant at my school). Spellings are one of the main areas which are holding children back in writing. In order for children to get a good grasp of this and avoid forming bad habits, us as teachers need to get to grips with it too… starting right from the beginning. Take a look! 👀👍🏻✏️
It was by far the most informative and exciting course to date. We were buzzing. It will help so much with the kids that have the gaps in the phonics and the day-to-day assisting with spellings and writing – brilliant strategies from self-checking techniques to new ways for individuals to learn their own spellings so they don’t make the same mistakes.

Phonics – Early Years to Key Stage One

The course is designed to support subject leaders, EYFS and KS1 teachers, HLTAs  and teaching assistants with the teaching of phonics. It is in line with the Letters and Sounds document used by many schools, but carries the general phonics principles of the statutory phonic requirements.  This training will support staff in the teaching of the daily phonics lesson along with the application of the use of phonics and spellings in everyday reading and writing. An array of resources will be provided as a result of attending the course, via a password-protected website link.

Lisha Wallace:  Attended the EYFS and KS1 Phonics course tonight and I must say that it was brilliant! As an NQT teaching a mixed Y1/2 class in September, I was terrified about teaching my two year groups Phonics & Spelling! I feel so much more confident now & am actually excited to start my planning tomorrow! The resources provided are fantastic too! I couldn’t recommend this Zoom training course more. Thank you so much, Claire & Amy 😊

David Harrington: A fantastic training course last night. Valuable for both teachers who are new to phonics or teachers who would like to build their confidence and subject knowledge. As a Year 2 teacher facing the phonics screening check I found the session invaluable. Claire and Amy made me feel at ease and comfortable in the session. The small group helped aid discussion and sharing of ideas and knowledge. A fantastic course with lots of useful resources provided. Thank you for a fantastic session and the support given.
