Sponsored Spell 2017



The BDA Sponsored Spell, kindly sponsored by Nessy, is a fun event for school children to encourage exploring a range of spelling strategies, whilst also raising awareness and funds for the British Dyslexia Association.

We hope that children will have fun whilst trying out different strategies for learning spellings.

Look out for the daily One Minute Spelling Strategy videos that Nessy will be sharing on their social media pages throughout Dyslexia Awareness Week to demonstrate diffferent spelling strategies in a fun and engaging way.

How your school can take part 

We are asking schools across the country to take part in our Sponsored Spell during Dyslexia Awareness Week  (2nd to 8th October 2017). Although, we are happy for schools to run this event throughout the year.

Click here for the 2017 Sponsored Spell pack.

Each class can do their own Sponsored Spell with teachers deciding on appropriate spellings for individuals, to make it a positive experience.

​Family and friends should be encouraged to sponsor children in acknowledgement of them taking part. 

Schools should collect sponsorship forms, with donations, and then return them to the British Dyslexia Association. Please get in touch if you're not sure the best way to return donations and forms to us.

If your school uses social media, please share your activities with us on Twitter and Facebook to help inspire others.

Thank you for your support and thanks to Nessy  for sponsoring the BDA Sponsored Spell.
