Supporting Speech, Language and Communication (SLC) in Primary Schools
Free event for school staff
Join London Bubble Theatre and The Communication Trust for a morning of professional development, research and playful drama.
The Communication Trust recently published Talking About a Generation, reviewing current identification of, and support for, speech, language and communication needs. Their report makes recommendations for government, commissioners, regulators and practitioners, including those responsible for teacher training. Octavia Holland; Director of The Communication Trust will present on the report and the new SLC Framework, which helps managers identify training needs.
London Bubble Theatre runs Speech Bubbles, a KS1 drama intervention to support children’s SLC. Latest research carried out by the University of East London showed that taking part in Speech Bubbles lifted children’s performance out of categories that would indicate cause for concern in relation to SLC. Associate Director Adam Annand will give an introduction to Speech Bubbles and explore how drama in schools can support communication development.
Refreshments will be provided.
