Previous events in 2021/22

 

TERM 1 - Primary Music

 

 
The event presenters were:
Mark Taylor (Vice Chair NAPE) - Mark has been a professional percussionist for 25 years and performed with some of the major orchestras and arts organisations in the UK including English National Ballet, Grange Park Opera and Royal Shakespeare Company.  

Mark combines his performing career with teaching drums/percussion in schools and providing whole class rhythm workshops. These samba rhythm workshops were filmed as part of the Art of Teaching Project developed by MusicTeachers.co.uk and the Musicians' Union which have now been viewed over 700,000 times on YouTube.

Sandra Mahaffey (National Council NAPE) - Sandra has been a primary school teacher for 42 years. 18 years of that was spent abroad with 8 years in highly academic schools in Italy and Brussels run by The European Union.

Sandra also taught in very challenging schools in the UK. She was in her last full time post for 10 years where the school was 93% '2nd language English 'and predominantly Muslim with a high percentage of refugees. In all of these settings Sandra taught music and was a drama specialist.

 'Music is a Universal Language' as we all know and in my professional life I have proven this to be true.

Term 2 - Special Educational Needs 

 

This online zoom event covered 3 areas of Special Educational Needs to help you support your pupils:

- English as an Additional Language (EAL)
- How to identify children who may also have dyslexia or another SPLD
- Common speech, language and communication needs

Co-occurring challenges

Do you ever worry that a child in your class is not making the progress you were expecting? There may be many reasons for this – and some will overlap.  In this interactive session, we will look at some of the causes of underachievement, and try to find some solutions that could benefit the whole class.

We will start by looking at how all teachers can effectively support those learners who are using English as an Additional Language (EAL), and then move on to what we should be alert to in order to identify any children who also may have dyslexia or another SPLD. Finally, we will look at some common speech, language and communication needs, and how they could be met in the classroom.

Please feel free to bring your questions and share your experiences, so that, as a group, we can empower each other to support our learners.
