It has been so great to be able to share the journey with not only my learners but the teachers in the biweekly 'New to Neuroscience' workshops I have been leading. One teacher - Emma Clarke who is another CoL teacher has been such a great support and sound board, she is currently trialling the tool with her learners as well. Other teachers in the group have taken the resources and intend on implementing them to their planning next week.
One of my next steps from our KPMG day was to get feedback from others about what language they use when teaching reading so I can gather data about if the 'shared language' I am promoting in my tool will be transferable across schools in different settings. It will be cool to keep getting feedback from teachers across the country or further to see the connections.

Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
