Programming is large part of the computing curriculum and one which is taught in each year group at primary school. This course will ensure subject leaders are confident in supporting colleagues to understand what primary programming entails; from developing simple algorithms to designing programs to meet specific goals and all the steps in-between.
Led by Tamsin Grimmer.
Children are arriving in our schools and settings with increasing levels of need, particularly in relation to Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) and Communication and Language. As educators we seek to understand the many influences and factors that impact our children, in order to respond appropriately.
During this conference, Tamsin will explore how adopting a loving pedagogy and relational approach can address these needs through nurturing our children and promoting their wellbeing. Recognising all behaviour as communicating needs, this conference will help you to feel increasingly confident when interpreting children’s behaviour and supporting Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and behaviour through positive relationships and mindful proactive responses and strategies. There will also be an opportunity to reflect on your own practice and identify strengths and areas for further development.
Led by Neill Cameron & Ben Payne.
Writing is a concern in many Primary Schools as children struggle to make-up for lost learning in an aspect of English which can be tricky at the best of times. Although mastering transcriptional accuracy is important, we also need writers in our classrooms who are engaged and have something to say.
At this year’s conference, leaders will have the opportunity to have fun and think deeply about how to truly immerse students in the writing process.
Led by Louisa McGivney, Lynn McCann and Laura Potter.
When children with complex needs who are autistic are in a class of many other children, it can be difficult for a mainstream teacher to know how best to support them, especially when they find it difficult to access what you may be doing with the whole class.
Our three guest speakers for the day will share insights, strategies, resources and examples of how to meet individual needs through effective communication, organisation and sensory support whilst having good curriculum provision, even for those who may not be ready for the National Curriculum. The day aims to increase confidence for SENCos in providing an appropriate, inclusive and communication friendly learning environment.
