Phonics Catch-Up for KS2: Supporting Pupils out of Covid

2020 was an unprecedented year in English education, and its repercussions will be keenly felt for many years.

This course helps KS2 teachers to provide that missed learning, and move phonics forward into sophisticated spelling support.

About this course

One of the biggest concerns about the impact of Covid on our children's education is that they might have significant gaps in their phonics knowledge.  Even the most enthusiastic parents and carers will have struggled in this highly-specialist area, and it's not much less daunting for many KS2 staff. This course explains how you can fill those gaps, and it also suggests practical and engaging ways to use phonics knowledge for higher-level spelling and writing. 

  • Clear outline of the phonics 'phases' and the content children need to know
  • How phonics gaps can impact on KS2 learning - and how to overcome that
  • Using phonics to diagnose spelling issues, for more sophisticated support
  • Using phonics in spelling investigations, pushing your children to greater depth

  • English Coordinators, SLT and Headteachers at Primary Schools
