Andrew
Many thanks for the work you have undertaken in this school. The following are some of my observations; that you may use publicly.
It can be a challenge for teachers to find effective ways of teaching spelling. What we want is actually a way for children to LEARN and remember spellings.
Following your work in my school, an experienced Year 4 teacher met with her class and explained how 'Things were going to be different'. She had been increasingly worried about the group of children who seemed to fail week after week in spelling tests, concerned about their self-esteem as much as their spelling ability. Part of her new approach was to abandon differentiated spelling lists, then the children used your methods to help learn their spellings.
After one week, all but six children achieved full marks in their spelling test. The remaining six children scored 8 or 9 out of ten. Four children had never before achieved full marks in a spelling test in their whole school career. This was a truly remarkable change. Then in the second week, ALL children achieved 100% in their spelling test. The positive attitude emanating from this classroom is palpable!
The boost to self-esteem has been tremendous, and is spilling over into all aspects of the children's learning. Another experienced teacher confided she had always thought there must be more than 'Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check' to learn spellings.

The impact of your methods speaks for itself and your knowledge and professionalism are truly inspiring to pupils and parents.
Introducing your learning methods has led to the most rapid improvement in attitude (and spelling accuracy!) that I have ever seen.
Anne Heywood,
Head Teacher.
