LIVE ONLINE: “Making Connections” Between the Mathematics and Numeracy and Language, Literacy and Communication AoLEs
Presenters: Helen Bowen, Lynwen Barnsley,

Curriculum for Wales 2022 is a holistic curriculum that allows learning to be drawn from across the different areas of learning and experience.

As we begin to embed the new curriculum over the next few years, schools will need to explore how they can make manageable links. How can we use literacy skills in a meaningful way to develop and improve mathematical understanding? Where is the natural overlap?


Collective Learning Zoom meeting

The format of training session will be somewhat different as we will be ‘meeting’ live, but on screen. The training will be for a small group so that we can be interactive. The day will be chunked into a series of bitesize pieces and will include tasks for reflection as well as discussion and collaboration. The day will also provide practical ideas for auditing your current provision, as well as supporting effective implementation of the new curriculum.

NEW What are Play Therapies? SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Presenter: Angela Coates,

‘When play and safe, stable, nurturing relationships are missing in a child’s life, toxic stress can disrupt the development of executive function and the learning of prosocial behaviour; in the presence of childhood adversity, play becomes even more important’. https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/142/3/e20182058

Play is a human right (UNCRC Article 31:The right to relax and play). The latest research in Neuroscience is clearly highlighting the importance of play for healthy brain development.

Are you interested in developing your awareness of the different play therapies available to pupils?
