Throughout the school year we have several opportunities for our families to learn together. Our family learning sessions aim to be enjoyable experiences for all in which the adults gain an understanding of how to support their child throughout their time at school.
Past Family Learning Sessions have included:
Outdoor Play and Learning
Parents and carers of Foundation Stage children learnt how we approach learning through play in the early years.
Literacy in the Outdoors
Parents and carers of Key Stage Two children have learnt how to support their children with literacy skills such as story writing, sentence structure and punctuation.
A ten hour arts and craft based course, based at Ham Hill Education Centre, in which parents and carers learnt new ideas for inexpensive and enjoyable craft activities to do with their children.
A ten hour forest school course, based at Ham Hill Education Centre, learning about the woodlands, outdoor safety and campfire cooking.
What the parents say:
“I really enjoyed the family learning day it has helped me to understand how my child learns.”
“It has given me the confidence to support my child with their writing”.
“We really enjoyed it- we have lots of new ideas”.
Some of the parents and carers who attended our courses have themselves gone on to either volunteer in school or complete further accredited learning themselves- eg: first aid in the outdoors and forest school training.
