Positive Parenting Seminar October 2019
We held a positive parenting seminar at our school which was open to all parents. We had a good turn out of parents and carers and they found the workshop really beneficial. They interacted with the seminar leader and were able to ask lots of questions.
The seminar leader covered a range of topics such as managing children’s behaviour, positive language, looking after our wellbeing, and building relationships with our children. It was delivered informally and the leader emphathised with parents reassuring them that managing children isn’t easy.
- Parent 1- “Great seminar it was nice and relaxed I felt comfortable”.
- Parent 2- “I learnt quite a few things and now know there is support available”.
- Parent 3- “It was really nice of school to organise this for us I found the workshop useful”.
Reception Oracy Project Summer 2019
The Oracy project aimed to develop children’s skills in the following areas:
- Speaking and listening
- Being Imaginative
During the workshop, we created characters from ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’ stories. Each child took home a set of story puppets that they created with their parents. This allowed them to practise retelling the story at home.
Throughout the project, the children developed their knowledge of the story and were confident in retelling the story to their parents, using story language. The parents were impressed with their child’s story language. The parents gave feedback after the session and said how much their child has enjoyed using their stick puppets at home and that they have even been performing in front of their family.
“It was really fun to do all of this with my child. I remember from when I was a child. Thank you.”
“We enjoyed it and it’s a good idea to get creative with the kids.”
“A great opportunity to spend time being creative with the children.”
“I really enjoyed the session. The children had fun and it was nice to see them working hard in Reception.”
“Thanks for your hard work. We are very happy about the event and your hard work. Thanks again.”
“I love this workshop because it gives me a chance to see the teachers and talk about my child and I also have fun during the workshop.”
Well Done to our Parents
Well done to our parents who completed the Basic English Course. We are very proud of your achievements. We hope this is a positive stepping stone to contribute towards your lifelong learning, so you can complete day to day tasks independently and support your child's homework. I hope you enjoy spending your vouchers at Sainsbury's because you deserve to be rewarded for your hard work.
Parent Basic English Skills course Autumn 2018
Our popular, free 'Parent Basic Skills' course has been successfully running for a few weeks now. The course aims to encourage our 'Mummy’s' to develop their basic English, so they gain independence in everyday tasks such as making appointments, reading letters, supporting their children’s homework and developing their confidence in speaking English.
The English course was very popular amongst our community, if you did not manage to get onto this workshop, please register your interest at our front office as we may be running another 'Parent Basic English' course, next term.
On completion of the course, parents will gain an accredited certificate and receive a treat.
We believe you will act as excellent role models in being ‘lifelong learners’ and showing children that we are all learning all the time, even as adult.
