Spelling – Subject Knowledge
‘We did really well at the Grammar test but the spelling let us down - many children scoring less than 5 out of 20.’
The teaching of spelling can be an issue in many schools. We follow the National Curriculum objectives, buy in a scheme, regularly teach spelling but it fails to improve the quality of our pupils’ spelling.
This course will cover the subject knowledge required to fully understand the spelling rules and anomalies of the English Language. Delegates will become confident with such terminology as: morphology and etymology and how this knowledge can greatly enhance the teaching of spelling in all primary classrooms.
This course would be open to all; teachers and teaching assistants
