Communication Friendly Spaces - Elizabeth Jarman

A colleague and myself recently attended a twilight training event delivered by Elizabeth Jarman, The Communication Friendly Spaces Approach.

Her approach is all about creating spaces for talk around your school and home. She recommends considering space, colour, light, resources and position. We came away with so many ideas! We would highly recommend this training for all schools, from early years right through to Key Stage 2.

Find out when her next training events are on her website here.

There are some great research papers covering the impact of colour and light too.
