Registration for the next free event is now open.

Thursday 3rd December | 16:-30 – 17:15 GMT

A free 1 hour introduction into the Sounds & Syllables approach to teaching primary spelling followed by a 15 minute Q & A session. We’ll cover:

  • the key principles of English spelling: we’ll explore the role of phonics & morphology in English orthography and uncover the probabilistic nature of English spelling
  • the Sounds & Syllables five-step spelling sequence: we’ll examine how these five steps can be used by children of all ages to spell words of any difficulty
  • the Sounds & Syllables curriculum: we’ll take a brief tour of the curriculum and resources that make for an effective spelling curriculum

 

Please note that only two places are available per school, so if your school has taken two places on previous tasters, unfortunately you would not be eligible to attend.

To verify that attendees are genuine, reservations will only be accepted from school email addresses.


Free Taster Session (via Zoom)

Dates to be confirmed. 

A free 1 hour introduction into the Rainbow Grammar approach to teaching sentence structure followed by a 15 minute Q & A session. We’ll cover:

  • rainbow grammar overview: we’ll explore how the coloured Rainbow Grammar building blocks help children to build an increasing range of sentence structures with technical accuracy
  • rainbow grammar coverage & progression: we’ll explore how younger children can build simple sentences using the traffic light method, and how we can build on this basic pattern to build a rich variety of sentences through key stages 1 and 2 and see how this covers the primary grammar curriculum in a clear, methodical and engaging way
  • impact on writing: we’ll explore children’s writing to see how using Rainbow Grammar has helped children to write with flair and technical accuracy
