‘Literally overnight, there was a dramatic shift in the quality of teaching and learning in English across the whole school. Philip’s carefully thought through five phased approach enabled each English skill to be taught well, with a wealth of teaching strategies and activities modelled to them, our classrooms changed from being hosts of passive learning to the feel of a great buzz and excitement.’
Gillian Wilson – Headteacher – St Oswald’s Primary School, Bradford
Quick phonics based spelling test downloads
This spelling test was originally designed as a very quick assessment for children entering Year 3. The ‘slides’ file gives more information. Below is a pdf version which can be used ‘as is’ and there is an editable Word version should you wish to customise.
I have shared the resources here as I have just been asked about them again and thought that they might be useful in September if teachers from Year 1 upwards need a quick and easy way in.
