• Immediate impact on children’s speech and language development
• Effective practitioners to give children the best possible start
• Strong partnerships with parents and carers

chatta is an accessible and flexible approach which supports play based learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage and links experiences to a continued process of language development. The approach and resources feature powerful elements which also support:

• Pupils with special educational needs

• The cycle of planning, observation and assessment

chatta was developed by Teach Early Years columnist, Chris Williams, and award-winning classroom technology consultant, David Andrews and is based on innovative classroom practice in hundreds of schools and nurseries across the UK.
