Previous Support Sessions and Workshops:

On Friday 3rd July, parents were invited to join in with a phonics workshop. The session was informative and practical, which allowed parents to try out a range of activities which are suitable to each phase in the letters and sounds scheme.

We all had great fun, testing out our listening skills, blending and segmenting words along with some basic reading.

Many Thanks to all who attended, it was lovely to spend the morning with you.

On Wednesday 25th March we held a Parents/Carers Forest Schools Workshop! Lesley Burton our Forest Schools Co-ordinator led the session. It was so informative and very practical. The parents who attended had the opportunity to take part in some of the activities that their children access when they attend a Forest Schools session. Thank you to those that braved the cold weather and joined us, your presence is always appreciated. Evaluation sheets were completed and I will endeavour to fulfil  some of the sessions that you would like to happen.

On Friday 15th May we held a Sherbourne workshop. It was delivered by Marie & Katie (class teachers) in school.

The morning was attended by parents/carers and the session consisted of both theory and practical activities.

Many thanks to all that attended, we love having you all in school!
