Primary School teachers and coordinators who want to learn and share their view of how children learn English these days


For participants to:

- Reflect on the learning process and analyse various techniques.
- Connect practice to updated learning theories and current educational ideas.
- Voice their own thoughts and find ways of implementing renewed ideas with their students.
- Plan a unit of work.


- A unit of work in action: activities which cater for diversity and have an outcome in mind. From story-telling to movie via singing and playing games. Integrating Science, Maths, Social studies and the Arts. Graded, tailor-made, connected activities and the rationale underpinning them.
- Developing linguistic, cognitive, emotional, moral and social skills: why and how.
- From experience to action via reflection and concept formation.
- Embracing diversity today: in our students, in what we need to teach, in materials and resources.
- Striving for understanding and the need for flexibility, empathy and leadership skills.
- Planning a unit of work.


This is an experiential workshop which invites participants to become aware of how learning happens to be in a better position to implement effective teaching with a Primary School class. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss, analyse and explore possibility to find ways of reaching all our students. Every participant will have the chance to plan a unit of work to start the year afresh.
