Primary NQT programme
March 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Embedding Phonics / Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar in English
A secure understanding of phonics is crucial for the early development of reading and writing skills. This workshop will support NQTs to become confident with the systematic teaching of phonics by providing them with practical and creative activities that they can use in their own classroom. It will develop their understanding of how a secure phonics knowledge can help children become independent literacy learners by supporting them to decode for reading, segment for spelling and write within a broad, rich literary curriculum. They will also understand the expectations for spelling as outlined in the National Curriculum, considering how spelling should form an integral component of every literacy lesson and should be embedded in lessons across the curriculum.
