Is spelling a priority in your school? Many schools are identifying spelling as a priority across the year groups and are working to develop learning and teaching in this area. In many cases, TAs are involved in supporting the teaching of whole class and group spelling, as well as supporting pupils to apply spelling strategies when writing. This course is designed especially to provide TAs with an understanding of the curriculum for spelling and its associated subject knowledge, as well as an opportunity to explore strategies and approaches for engaging pupils in the investigation, learning and application of spelling.
- understand the national curriculum requirements for spelling in each year group and the associated subject knowledge and terminology
