write a sentence
choose a correct spelling
best bet (which spelling is the most common)
Ideal for Primary or Secondary, or as a ‘go to’ presentation to explain French phonics and tricky combinations. Including GIFs and a clear-cut, bright and engaging lay-out. It contains 55 slides.
Ideal to use in class or as independent learning to be uploaded for students as the explanations are clear and concise.

Phonics, reading and spelling documents to support the assessment, teaching and learning of: Letters and Sounds and spelling lists from the National Curriculum 2014, Years 1 to 6.
These high quality reference documents enable quick access to phonics, reading and spelling lists from Years 1 to 6.
The formative assessment tool for each objective/learning outcome identifies:
Learner’s strengths, areas for development and next steps of learning;
Gaps in learning.
An effective reading and spelling record for individuals or group pupils, providing a simple progress measure and evidence for:
1:1 sessions for pupils with special educational needs;
Group work for pupils with additional needs;
Differentiated lessons for whole class learning.
These are some literacy starters I use for my Year 3 class who are very poor readers and spellers.
They need extra work on phonics, so every day I do one of these starters before my literacy lesson.
Could easily be used up and down the school.
I will add more slides as I go and update on here when I can.
