The theme for April is... 'Exercise before Expectation!'

In our busy lives, finding the time and the right words to talk with our children about their learning is trickier than you might think. Children these days can struggle to know what to say when you ask them about their day. Often, this is down to us asking the wrong questions in the wrong way.

The solution is simple - but subtle and – it is always to hand, in fact it is at your FingerTIps

Think how empowering it would be to have the words that work to talk together, reflect together and grow together with your children.

Talking together is just for you, whether you are a parent or carer, foster carer or adopter, or you are an adult in education or early years- these strategies work for everyone, they are simply sustainable.

Join Ali an innovative, insightful, award-winning expert in education and parenting for an informal and interactive evening zoom. 

Bring your dinner or just a glass of something refreshing, simply listen or feel free to interact and engage learning strategies accessible to everyone that are simply unforgettable.

Knowing the science behind the strategies makes it all the more memorable and simply makes the strategies makes sense. Based on considerable and current first hand experience as a SENCo, teacher, teacher-trainer and tutor, best known for her work on boys but now globally recognised for her work on behaviour and learning, Ali has lived and breathed so many of the challenges you are facing- or supported a school or setting that has been struggling with them too.

Discover the words that work and simple successful strategies for supporting sustainable behaviours, whether at home, at school or in life.

Finding the right words with your children is not always easy. Whether we are talking about learning, behaviour or learning behaviours- finding the right words can open up opportunities to talk with your children, or about your children with the other adults around them.

It may seem simple, but the depth and details make all the difference - and the solutions are at your FingerTips®.
