Event Description
ESSENTIALspelling is a whole-class approach to teaching spelling that enables all pupils to succeed and gives teachers the unique tools to make that happen. The course is designed to support Y3 and 4 teachers to deliver this new scheme effectively and tailor the resource to the needs of their class. This live webinar is a follow-up session to the pre-recorded ‘on-demand’ training session.

ESSENTIALspelling comprises a year’s worth of detailed planning sequences; full explanations of the learning behind the teaching; ideas for activities; resources to help teachers deliver the sessions. Every sequence tracks back to review prior linked learning, enabling pupils to build on the foundations of previous year groups, and assisting teachers to identify gaps in learning. Every sequence shows teachers how to support the pupils who have minor gaps in their previous learning as well as those who have not secured the foundations needed for any given sequence. And, every sequence helps make spelling fun!
