Word Wise – Mark Making, Phonics and Spelling – a detailed exploration of teaching phonics and spelling

1 day course

‘An important feature of high quality phonics and spelling work is that it should be systematic which means teaching all the major grapheme-phoneme correspondences in a clearly defined sequence so that children become accomplished readers and writers.’ Rose Review

Whichever phonics and spelling programme you use in school, this course will strengthen your toolkit and enable you to actively engage learners in early mark making, spelling, reading and writing.

This one day course will provide you with an approach that provides structure and yet gives teachers flexibility around the teaching of phonics and spelling.

  • Understand the development of mark making in young children.
  • Re-visit the key principles of teaching phonics and spelling effectively.
  • Reflect on the phonic and spelling knowledge and skills required by children at different stages of development.

  • Consider what to do when progress becomes impeded.
  • Share ideas for activities and experiences that support learning.
