Code: CPD/21/165 Introduction to Colourful Semantics (COURSE FULL)

Colourful Semantics is an approach created by Alison Bryan, a Speech and Language Therapist based in the UK. It is often recommended by speech and language therapists working with pupils in Hounslow.

It is a method of teaching children how to understand and build sentences. It is aimed at helping children to develop their grammar, but it is rooted in the meaning of words (semantics). In Colourful Semantics, sentences are cut up into their thematic roles and these are colour coded. Pictures are also used to help construct the sentences.

This session will be facilitated by Kavasha Kander, Speech & Language Therapist, and is suitable for all professionals working in Hounslow mainstream Primary schools.

Code: CPD/21/130 RE: Network Meeting for Primary Subject Leaders

RE is an exciting, engaging and dynamic subject but one that some teachers often find challenging.

These two meetings are in a series designed to offer help, advice and support for those responsible for manging and/or teaching RE in schools in the London Borough of Hounslow.

• Suppliers gives the Builder the pieces
• Builders follow the building instructions from the Engineer in order to construct the model.

This practical course outlines how to run a lego-therapy session in your school.

This session is suitable for all professionals working in Hounslow mainstream & specialist EY & Primary settings.
