This 2-hour introductory webinar is designed to build knowledge and understanding in how to teach spelling effectively to children from Year 3 to Year 6.

A range of strategies and approaches are introduced, based on proven classroom practice and the research from the CLPE publication Understanding Spelling. Teachers are introduced to recent and relevant examples of a range of quality children's literature that build a repertoire of vocabulary, create connections and provide spelling models.

What you will learn:

  • An introduction to the context of the English spelling system, including a brief history of English language development.
  • Evidence-based classroom environments, practice and provision that enable children, in these later stages of development, to learn to spell effectively.
  • The role that a rich reading curriculum plays in ensuring that children become confident and effective spellers in a range of different contexts.
  • How to introduce a classroom culture of curiosity and collaboration in which learners are confident to take an investigative approach to spelling in a rich reading curriculum.

This webinar is part of a two-session package of webinars which provide participants with an introduction to the CLPE approach to teaching spelling across KS1 and KS2. Schools can either book leaders on to both sessions for a complete overview, or book individual teachers on to the sessions that applies to the phase they teach.

This webinar is delivered via Zoom. Once a place has been secured, the participant will receive a pre-registration email three days before the training date with details on how to join the session. Please ensure that you register in advance of the event start time. If you have any issues, please email [email protected].

Webinar price is per person.
