Hi all, I am a primary NQT, I have a year 4 class who are happy to write (and lots love it), but for the vast majority, the spelling is terrible, it is obvious to me even as an NQT that that have never been taught to spell. Even for those on spelling intervention, their learning consists of a TA giving them a series of words to learn and them taking it home to memorise and then be tested on it in school I've done my research and I know support for spelling is there and obviously L&S, but I want to focus my literacy sessions and develop a clear format in them with a starter that can help with spelling. I haven't asked my KS co-ordinator yet about suggestions on this but can someone tell exactly what I could be doing here? I've started to do dictation a little but and some apparently 'able' children are getting 50% of them wrong, terrible. I appreciate any help at all, thanks.
