This course has been developed in response to raised expectations for spelling in the current curriculum.
It aims to support Key Stage 2 teachers to gain a deeper understanding of the spelling system and how to prioritise next steps for individuals, in order to accelerate their progress and confidence.
The course explores the issue of how to manage differentiating provision in an increasingly demanding classroom environment. During the day, we will unpick the aspects of spelling that often hold pupils back, and we will then look at approaches to support pupils' understanding in these areas.
A range of strategies and resources for planning, teaching and assessment will be provided.

Fluency sessions – the what, why, when and how.
A day of training which includes a complete suite of resources to support teachers back in school. Schools are aware of the need to ensure pupils are ‘fluent’ with their mathematics knowledge and skills. Many are establishing fluency sessions (also known as maths meeting or everyday fluency) to support this, but what does an effective session look like?
This one-day course will unpick the purpose of fluency sessions and outline a possible structure. Resources will be given out on the day which schools can use as a starting point. The course also includes the resources for an introductory staff meeting for launching back in school, so that mathematics subject leaders can get going straight away with implementing the sessions. The course is timed so that teachers can trial the resources in the summer term and evaluate, ready for roll-out in September.
Following excellent feedback for the workshops on offer at this year’s Love That Book conference, we are delighted to be able to take a number of these workshops ‘on the road’ this summer.
