Our first two seminars of 2018 have now taken place, so thank you to everyone who joined us in either Thetford, Norfolk, or Rainham, Essex, to find out about implementing and sustaining high-impact literacy and numeracy interventions.
The lunchtime seminars were led by two of our Catch Up® Accredited Trainers – Janet Beverley (Thetford) and Clare Manghan (Rainham) – who both deliver Catch Up® training to teachers and TAs at a number of our Regional Training Centres, and we were delighted to hear from a range of school staff, who talked about their different experiences in using Catch Up® Literacy and Catch Up® Numeracy.
Congratulations to our most recent voucher winners, whose names were drawn from those who completed our Autumn Term RTC survey and Progress Reporting Tool survey. Our lucky winners came from Suffolk, Somerset, Tyne and Wear, Oxfordshire, Essex, London and Surrey; each of them received a £20 Marks and Spencer voucher.
Our 2018 Spring and Summer Term courses are now ready to take your bookings. Taking place at Regional Training Centres across the UK, we are running 62 courses over the next 7 months, starting in Leeds on 22nd January and finishing in Bristol on 11th July! Our Catch Up® Accredited Trainers are looking forward to training many more teaching assistants and teachers to deliver our proven literacy and numeracy interventions.
As we approach the end of Autumn 2017, the Catch Up® team are looking forward to a well-earned rest after yet another very busy term! We have delivered more than 80 ‘Delivering Catch Up®’ training courses, welcoming over 900 attendees to the Catch Up Community! In addition to this, we have been really pleased to deliver our additional training sessions including ‘Review and Refresh’, ‘In-depth workshops’ and the Coordinator network meetings!
The following question came up on Catch Up® Literacy training: What should I do if a pupil adds extra words when reading?
Do you have pupils who do that? It’s almost as if the printed words are just a hint about what should be read! These pupils often add in extra words or change the order of the words. If we can pinpoint why they are doing it, then we can help them to kick the habit.
