Parent learning sessions launched at Abbey Hill.

5th November 2015

A series of sessions will be held throughout the year with the first workshops commencing on the afternoon of Friday November the 20th from 1pm to 4pm. There will be a number of 60 minute workshops being delivered, which pending spaces being available can be attended as required. These sessions will hopefully provide parents and carers with the advice, skills and strategies to support their child or young person in the home setting and consolidate the key learning messages that have been taking place this term.
Below is an over view of the sessions and the key learning content.

‘A healthier school’

It is our intention to support students, staff and their family to become more healthy. This session will look at healthy and filling breakfasts to support pupils and students in getting energy and the fuel they need to concentrate and learn in lessons. Packed lunch ideas for the whole family- packed lunches can become boring, let us help you jazz up your packed lunches and keep them low in fat. We all love snack foods and they do have their place; learn how to make the sensible choices!
This session will be involve practical hands on tasks.

 There are a maximum of ten places per workshop. This will be lead by Jane O'Connell

E safety

This session lead by David Dixon will:

  • Develop awareness of different ways in which children and young people use the internet and mobile technology.
  • Develop awareness of the possible risks to children and young people when using different methods of online and mobile communication.
  • Be able to identify key E- Safety practices of which children and young people should be aware.
  • Be aware of further online E- Safety support.

  • Promoting Numeracy skills at home

    This session will focus on a number of strategies and techniques that you can promote with your child or young person to engage with numeracy tasks in the home. This will hopefully support and help embed the skills that are learnt in the classroom.
