Unlocking Potential: Metacognition Strategies in Education and TA Collaboration – February’s SENsible Magazine

by | Feb 3, 2024

It’s the month of Love, but shouldn’t every month be like this?

Hello everyone, and welcome back to your favorite read, SENsible Magazine!

Can you believe it? With everything happening, it nearly slipped my mind to get this edition out. Imagine that! This February, we’re diving into some pretty compelling topics that I think you’ll find as fascinating as I do. Our experts in educational psychology (EPs) are back to shed some light on metacognition, a concept I’m sure many of you are keen to explore further.

We also have a special piece that touches on the dynamics between Teaching Assistants (TAs) and supply staff. It’s no secret that blending new faces with established routines can be a bit of a puzzle, but we’re here to offer some strategies to make these transitions smoother. Plus, we’re wrapping up our insightful series on “Unmasking the Reasons Behind Pupils’ Misbehavior.” It’s a reminder that behavior is indeed a form of communication, and understanding this can change how we support our students.

A huge shoutout to Fonetti for a memorable day at the Amazon HQ, where we celebrated some incredibly deserving kids at the awards ceremony. The event was nothing short of magical, and I’m thrilled about the opportunity to do it all over again this year. And yes, it’s still free for all schools to participate, so keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming details!

And oh, our SENCO planner! We’re back at the drawing board, making tweaks to ensure it meets your needs even better. The latest mockup just came in, and while we’re close to the final product, we’ve got a few more adjustments in the pipeline.

I’ve tried not to make the break section too challenging this time around, but no promises – I do like to keep you on your toes!

Sending you all warm wishes and hoping this edition brings a little extra knowledge, insight, and perhaps even a smile or two to your day.

Until next time, stay safe and keep inspiring.

Warmest wishes,

The SENsible Magazine Team
