Code: ENG/20/365/P ESSENTIALspelling Year 5

Herts for Learning is pleased to be launching a brand new spelling resource- a scheme with a difference: ESSENTIALspelling. With the heightened status that spelling holds in the Teacher Assessment Framework at Key Stage 2, leaders will no doubt be looking to raise the profile of spelling across their school. This is particularly relevant if there are a number of pupils across KS2 who are struggling within this area. 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.

Each year group receives a year’s worth of teaching sequences comprising: detailed plans; 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!

Delegates will receive an advance discounted copy of the scheme for this year group, this is included in the cost of the training.
