Frewen College

Frewen College


Frewen College was asked by the British Dyslexia Association and PATOSS (The professional association of teachers of students with specific learning difficulties) to take part in a series of short information films showing best dyslexia teaching practice. The videos will now be used by the BDA as a resource for teachers.

The six videos show some of the strategies our teachers use to help dyslexic students to learn effectively and make progress, and each film focuses on a different aspect of teaching and learning.  The first two can be found on our homepage, and the other four below. We hope you enjoy watching them.


Film 3: Using questions to check understanding

A film showing how Frewen teachers strategically ask questions throughout lessons to ensure dyslexic students fully understand a concept.

Film 4: Making links to previous learning

A film showing how important it is for teachers to help dyslexic children connect their work from lesson to lesson and across subjects.

Film 5: Outlining the lesson

This film illustrates how Frewen teachers summarise a lesson at the start to help set students' expectations and to give them a clear structure.

Film 6: Appropriate use of IT.

This film demonstrates how Frewen College uses Assistive Technology to enable students who find reading and writing a barrier to their learning, to overcome this and produce meaningful printed work.
