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.
