Language Through Colour

To learn how to use the Language Through Colour approach to support learning in the classroom.

The aims of the course are to learn how to use the Language Through Colour approach to support learning in the classroom in the following areas:

  1. Understanding and using vocabulary
  2. Using sentence structure
  3. Understanding and using narrative
  4. Reading comprehension.

Language through colour is a very simple colour-coded resource to help children understand the meaning of words and develop their reading and writing. It is an excellent tool for supporting children with language difficulties, benefiting all learners as part of good quality first teaching.

We will explore a model of speech and language, look at the barriers to learning you see in your classroom and how Language through Colour can be used in interventions and whole class teaching to overcome these. There will be lots of examples that are currently being used effectively in local schools and ‘hands on’ activities so that you gain a real practical understanding of the approach.

Refreshments will be provided.

We require a minimum of one weeks’ notice of cancellation for a full refund.

The course will be jointly presented by Julie Pout (Specialist Teacher and Learning Service); and Helen James and Emma Jones (Speech and Language Therapists). The presenters are passionate about the positive impact of Language through Colour from EYFS through to Secondary.
