Event Description
This new course aims to support Key Stage 2 teachers gain a deeper understanding of how children learn to spell and how to manage differentiation in an increasingly demanding classroom environment.

During the day, we will unpick the aspects of spelling that often hold children back and will then look at approaches to support their understanding in these areas.

Delegates will discover how to deliver discreet spelling instructions as well as how to create a word rich environment in which pupils can refine their skills and apply their learning in engaging contexts.
