Learning new concepts

The children in the Language Development Unit have been working on developing their understanding and use of concepts. ‘Concept cat’ is the character who the children use to help with them with their learning. Claire and Margaret, our speech and language therapy team members, work with the children weekly. We do the ‘Concept Cat’ activities in a kinaesthtic manner in order to expose the children to the concepts in different settings and through practical experiences. The children share the concepts they are developing with other staff members within the school which can encourage them to generalise their learning.Concept Cat group
