‘chatter matters’ week 2019 – ‘bounce it back’

We are celebrating ‘chatter matters’ week this year from 11th – 15th March. The theme is ‘chatter matters – bounce it back’ a slogan suggested by one of our speech and language champions!

The theme comes from the idea of ‘serve and return’ interactions. Communication passes between us, a bit like a ball bouncing back and forth. Here is some more explanation:
