On the 22nd February, we, together with AcornTree PCS, hosted our first exciting SenCo CPD day!
Our therapist, Hannah, delivered a workshop all about developing children’s vocabulary. This was a fun, hands on session which identified strategies to teach vocabulary both explicitly and implicitly. Here’s what Hannah had to say about the day;
“What a fun day it was…. thank you to everyone who came and took part on what we hope will be an annual event”.
Amanda Hull, from AcornTree PCS, also delivered a workshop about ‘ditching the cloud’. This looked at alternatives to the sun, cloud and star systems used in school for behaviour management, to provide children with understanding and consistency and tools to make better choices.
As well as Hannah and Amanda’s workshops, we also heard from Martin Bohn, from Solution Focussed Inclusion, who is a Solution Focused Practitioner. Martin delivered a session about how collaborative solution practice can support young people with communication difficulties.
Watch this space for our next SenCo Day in Autumn!
