The chatta team will be attending the BETT show in January and over the course of the 4 days (January 25th – 28th) 6 of us of will be available to explain and demonstrate chatta and its impact.
chatta’s vision is aligned with the organisers and attendees of the BETT show and share the values of the event’s mission statement:
We believe in creating a better future by transforming education. Our mission is to bring together people, ideas, practices and technologies so that educators and learners can fulfil their potential.
We will be launching 3 new resources at the show:

The chatta approach ensures recall,application and fluency. It supports and maximises the impact of best practice teaching and skilled educational practitioners.
- chatta: Talk for Boys
The chatta Talk for Boys training and resources provide guidance for practitioners who want to know what works for boys in early years settings by:
- Utilising boys fascinations and learning preferences as a starting point for planning
- Providing an environment for opportunities for exploration and curiosity
- Using chatta‘s unique approach to capture the experiences which focus on boys’ interests and link these to different types of talk
By drawing upon the experience and expertise of early years practitioners, ‘Talk for Boys’ ensures accelerated speech and language skills for *boys (and *girls too).
Each of these new developments include printed resources and activity packs based on the unique chatta approach, as well as practical training activities and guided implementation to meet the needs and direction of every school and nursery.
