Course Description

This course includes over 2 hours of video content and over 240 slides you can refer to during the course and download so you can refer to them later. 

Each classroom has a range in ability. The course outlines a process which enables teachers to be comfortable with the range in ability, and flexible enough to devise a process that matches student ability.

The first step is assessing the class. A simple time efficient non-standardised spelling test is provided. It identifies the gaps in knowledge and/or the level at which students are currently at.

On the basis of the results (and the range in ability) next a synthetic phonics approach is outlined which aims to deliver significant spelling and phonics skill development.


This cost effective short course is comprised of 6 installments

Installment 1: Screening to establish the range in ability within a junior primary class.
Installment 2: The marking/analysis of the student spelling tests, to establish ability groups and to focus your teaching.
Installment 3: Introduction to Synthetic Phonics – Quality learning activities drawing upon the class profile.
Installment 4: Establishing a weekly spelling process in which three groups can be facilitated.                                           Installment 5: Frequently Asked Questions – e.g. How many spelling words? How and when do spelling groups get reviewed? Suggestions for spelling tests? How do sight words relate to synthetic phonics?
Installment 6: Using the class profile to expand the process beyond spelling & students who are progressing slowly.
