Our students may arrive from a range of different countries with different cultures and different learning styles but the principles of great teaching still apply. This course will look at a range of practical strategies to help support learners with English as a second language and also help us understand what it feels like to be in their shoes, avoid assumptions and recognise that language may not be the only barrier.
Using drama games and techniques can be a great way to motivate learners to read. They can begin to see texts in action; play with stories and characters; and develop a sense of ownership of the stories, as well as empathy with characters.
The use of speech to develop writing or comprehension skills is a great way to both motivate children not just in literacy lessons but across the whole primary curriculum.
Creative drama can have a positive impact on children’s writing skills. Drama games and activities provide our children with a wealth of make believe experiences they will want to write about and structured drama techniques help them focus on the writing skills they need.
‘Start with the end in mind’ - a phrase said by more than one leader in education thinking. What does this mean for assessment? This webinar covers a range of assessment strategies that fit well with the new Ofsted Inspection Framework.
Resilience is a bit of a magic word in education: when you get it right, children learn from failure, persist in practice, manage fall-outs, overcome distractions, and much much more! So how do we teach resilience? This course explores how to develop resilience, and embed it into your school culture.
Supporting staff can be fraught with challenges. Choosing the right tone, approach, setting to convey your message so it has impact is tricky. Maintaining improvements after that initial conversation can be trickier. How can we improve, whilst keeping people on board?
Uncertainty can lead to fear, which is not a great place from which to make decisions. Let us help you navigate areas of uncertainty around the new ‘Deep Dive’ language and methodology. This one-hour webinar will help you can prepare straight-forward strategic actions to help you implement improvements where you need them.
The Path to Success rightly places great importance on the need for context and purpose in learning. This is never more vital than in the early stages of learning, and learning through play is one of the best ways to facilitate this.
Changing your approach to maths lessons and everything that entails can, at times, seem overwhelming especially when you are trying to include all the different mastery elements that make maths lessons effective. So how do you do it? How do you design an effective lesson?
When you teach maths, do your children learn? Research suggests we can achieve better outcomes by starting from their own ideas - and misconceptions. But we often make great efforts to avoid mentioning misconceptions altogether.
Children seem to be starting school with decreasing levels of oracy; and our focus on the written form for evidence can sometimes divert our attention from speaking and listening. This online training shares several of our favourite approaches for oracy development in the Early Years, but the strategies need little adaptation to apply in the key stages too.
Many children go through phases when they are restless or inattentive; this doesn't necessarily mean they have ADHD. However, when short attention spans, constant fidgeting and acting impulsively become barriers to their education and their lives, this course will help find ways in which we can make effective and reasonable adjustments to support their education.
Autistic spectrum disorder affects both communication and behaviour. While diagnosis can happen at any stage in life, it is often referred to as a developmental disorder and can be the cause of some emotional immaturities for some learners. This course will explore this wide range of variations and identify ways of working with individuals to support their development as well-rounded learners.
For one in twenty learners, dyslexia is likely to significantly impact on their progress in reading, writing, spelling and maybe even maths. However, there are many positive ways we can support learners and build on their strengths and this practical course will give you plenty of ideas and ways of working.
How can we ensure our pupils are retaining - and applying - what they have ‘learned’ in any given subject, topic, or year?
A new EYFS Framework takes effect in September 2021, after two years of trial in so-called "Early Adopter" schools. This one-hour session will take you through the main changes to the framework, and give you advice from Early Adopter schools across the country.
Drama provides an accessible and memorable way to learn about PSHE topics. It provides the opportunity to have real discussions and make real choices that are essential for good PSHE. By actually taking part in a scenario, as well as watching others and listening to others, we use all our senses and get a chance to apply our decisions and both watch and experience, in a safe environment, the consequences of those decisions.
Wake your body, wake your mind! A healthy body and a healthy approach to life can support adults AND children alike in improving wellbeing, personal awareness and health.
The new Ofsted framework’s emphasis on foundation subjects poses an exciting (if difficult) challenge for teachers. We know from decades of guidance what a good maths or English lesson looks like, but what about history, geography, art, music?
We all know that children write better when they have something engaging to write about, and Foundation Subject knowledge has long been used as an inspiration for writing lessons. But how do we maintain high standards in the original subject area when it becomes a ‘learning aid’ in English?
