Spotlight on Spelling


Making Good use of No Nonsense Spelling.
No Nonsense Spelling is a complete spelling programme (Y2-6), created by teachers for teachers. This session will focus particularly on Y2-4. In addition, we will introduce a new resource which supports effective use of No Nonsense Spelling: WAND Spelling.

The training session will be led by Jenny Core, English Adviser for Babcock LDP. The Babcock LDP English team is a well-established and experienced group of English advisers, who work extensively in schools in Devon and beyond.


In this session we will explore:
  • Principles of teaching and learning in spelling
  • Teaching the lessons: spelling content and spelling strategies
  • Adapting the resource to your children
  • Routines and resources for independent learning and ownership
  • Strategies for assessing spelling
Wand Spelling is an interactive online resource to supplement the teaching of spelling from Y2 to Y6. It is designed for children to use as home learning activities or independent activities in school.
