A number of parents/carers have asked the school for advice, helpful tips and strategies to help them help their children to get the most out of remote learning. We thought this could be useful for all parents/carers to access so we are issuing it through our website and social media.

Good morning parents and carers of Inverness Royal Academy. Today’s tip focuses on supporting spelling through games. The video takes you through how to use a variety of strategies to support spelling at home. These strategies are outlined on pages 6-14 of this booklet. As a bonus, the rest of the attached booklet is a guide for parents supporting other aspects of literacy at home such as reading fluency and vocabulary.
Look out for tip four next week where we will be looking at supporting children with dyslexia.
All Higher English pupils now have a revision log book to fill in weekly. Accompanying their log book is this guide to effective revision. The guide can be viewed at the link below and would make a useful discussion tool if you would like to help your child structure their revision. The guide leads them through how to approach revision for all of their subjects in the most effective way including techniques such as dual coding and interleaving. There is also a section with activities specific to their English revision.
