Rebecca and I have recently taught the teachers at Carlton Infant and Junior School in Kirklees all about the metacognitive approach called: A-Z Thinking Moves (from Dialogueworks). What wonderful feedback – Thank you!
I have really enjoyed the training as it has made me deepen myKS1 teacher
thinking about how I could use the A-Z strategies in my everyday
I found the training very useful because it was engaging,KS2 Teacher
informative and knowledge rich. The training had a clear focus
and the PowerPoint slides progressed from knowledge to
activities to research and they were interactive and efficient in
building a good understanding of A-Z thinking moves.
Both trainers were friendly and ensured the training wasSLT Teacher
engaging and answered questions with a lot of detail and
examples. They were both very knowledgeable and shared their
passion for A-Z enthusiastically. I am looking forward to
implementing these moves into my teaching.

Good training session, well enjoyed and I feel the training was taught in a way it has stuck in my head and I now understand how to implement this into all subjects.KS1 Teacher
The training enabled us to understand the processes even though asEYFS Teacher
practitioners we are using them. The A-Z toolkit encouraged us to
really zone into the language we use not just to get to an end product
but to really encourage all children to develop reasoning skills.
The first session was conducted clearly and well. It was interesting and informative.KS1 Teacher
The second session was fun and entertaining and allowed us to engage well in the session.
I think the training was very useful and helped me to identify and give aLKS2 Teacher
name to the moves that I was already using in my classes. It also introduced me to many more and broke each step down in simple terms.
The session was very useful and delivered to a high standard. Educators were both very engaging.KS2 Teacher
