New Techniques at

St. Joseph's National School

St. Joseph’s Primary School in Rathwire, Co Westmeath was one of three schools that participated in a pilot project that ran from October 2013 to June 2014, with amazing results. Within a few short weeks, staff from St. Joseph’s reported sharp rises in weekly spelling tests (English and Irish!) and maths tests. There have been phenomenal results in long term spelling achievement. In fact, the system has now become an intrinsic part of one of the school’s whole teaching approach resulting in improved learning outcomes, a calmer environment and happier pupils and staff.

I have found that grounding works very well for all children. It is particularly useful when starting off work in the morning and after break times when the children can be a little giddy or unsettled after break times. The children themselves have commented on how calm the classroom is after we use it. I have also started to let the children talk us through the grounding.

Going to swimming lesson one of our Junior infants was worried that she would sink to the bottom when she was swimming as she knew she would be swimming without her armbands that day. She said to her Mum, I know I’ll do my grounding and I’ll blow out my worries about sinking to the bottom!!

I have used visualising for spellings, maths, geography, (learning counties). I have one child who would have dyslexic tendencies and has difficulty with spelling, it has done wonders for her.

It makes remembering spelling easier for her. Another child in fifth class who is very bright all round but can have difficulty with spelling has really taken to it. Her mums comment to me was… “This visualising is amazing, she can even spell the words backwards now”

Michelle uses grounding and visualising in the Junior room. She’s using it for spellings and maths tables and has found it very helpful for both. One senior infant has difficulty with phonics, he knows all his individual sounds but cannot blend his words. He is finding it easier to learn his words by visualising.

We have a child with Down Syndrome in the second class. His first time writing any word from memory was since we started using visualising with him.

We are delighted that we did the Jumpstarting course and can already see the benefits it has for the children’s learning.
