Project focus

    The Herts for Learning Spelling SOS KS2 Project focuses on:

    • improving the standards in spelling for a group of target pupils
    • enabling pupils to have a more positive relationship with spelling
    • developing memory strategies to support pupils in storing their learning in their long-term memory, and accessing and applying this learning in independent writing
    • developing teachers’ subject knowledge in order for them to be able to identify pupils’ misconceptions accurately, and prioritise key learning areas for individuals
    • how to implement and manage a whole class teaching sequence that meets the varying needs of individuals.

    Participate in this project

    Spelling SOS KS2 is now being delivered as a structured 10-week programme of fully resourced CPD that provides teachers with the tools and knowledge to identify and address the most significant gaps in spelling learning starting this September.

    Impact and outcomes

    The Spelling SOS KS2 project has been designed to have a swift and powerful impact on pupils’ spelling achievement in a short period. Following successful implementation of the project, targeted pupils will be on an improved trajectory towards EXS in writing at the end of KS2; have a more positive relationship with spelling; be more enthusiastic, confident spellers with an increased understanding and knowledge.

    Teachers will have an increased understanding of the different routes children take into spelling. Subject knowledge will be developed, and this will enable teachers to identify misconceptions accurately, and prioritise key learning areas to focus on for individuals.
