" Closing the word gap" in Sandwell

The aims of the 90 minute free session were to learn about 

  • The impact of vocabulary on other areas of learning 
  • How to select the right vocabulary to teach 
  • How to teach vocabulary in a systematic and effective way 
  • How to activate the vocabulary outside the teaching group

Feedback suggests we achieved these aims and more with all partipcants having made gains in all areas

It was particularly pleasing to see how much progress was made around the importance of understanding that  unless the vocabulary is generalised into everyday use then what happens in the small teaching groups has minimal impact.

Soundswell are running 3 more free training sessions in Sandwell this spring ( two for KS 1/2, and 1 for KS 3/4), so if you'd like to come along just get in touch- we'd love to see you there:info@soundswellspeech.com

 

Here's what some of the Great Bridge folks said afterwards:-

Good ideas – thank you

Thank you – a really enjoyable informative learning session

Super!  Thanks – sure I’ll feel more confident once I’ve started to work with the children

This course has increased my understanding and confidence
