"There was so much in the course that will be useful, both to myself and colleagues. As a school, our focus currently is Oracy, and the opening of the presentation helped me to focus on exactly where I need to focus activities and support. But the practical advice later, will be so useful for colleagues who are developing children's ability to communicate, regardless of ability.
The presenter, Sara, was very engaging, and clearly passionate about children and learning. having sat through so many zoom courses, and feeling a passenger, Sara really brought the subject to life and I felt fully engaged."
