Tooled up News Update

Tooled Up News Dec 3

This week, we’ve been refreshing some of our favourite resources to make them more fun and appealing for your children to use. We love the new versions of How Resilient Am I? and Who is there for me? and hope that you do too! We’ve also updated some of our oracy activities - take a look at My Oracy Profile and Reflecting on Your Presentation. Our CV for Primary Aged Children has also had a revamp. We’d love to know what you think!

As well as giving some of our older resources a bit of a makeover, we’ve also been busy filling the library with new ones. Our Mood Thermometer is a great way to encourage younger children to identify their emotions, build a vocabulary around feelings and come up with some strategies that might help when they experience strong emotions. 

We have also just added a recently recorded webinar to the Tooled Up library, where eating disorders expert, Dr Sophie Nesbitt, debunks common myths and answers frequently asked questions. And, after attending an eating disorders conference last week, we also wanted to let you know about six free and fantastic, evidence-based resources that you can use to help boost your children’s body image. We’ve also added a podcast on memory and learning (with the fabulous Dr Duncan Astle), an interview with lawyer Maria Strauss about schools’ responses to Ofsted’s report into sexual abuse in schools and a video about the university application process. Phew, it’s been a busy week.

Finally, we’ve been asked to spread the word about a fantastic research project looking at the impact of the pandemic on young people with a diagnosis of ASD and/or ADHD.
