Parents attending this workshop with Emma Beadle our Speech & Language Therapist learned how to better communicate with their children at home. This included advice on how to talk to children in a way that allows them to practice speech and language without placing too much pressure on them. So instead of asking too many questions and quizzing children, try and use more comments that give opportunities for general conversation.
This will help them develop their language skills and enrich their vocabulary.
Thank you to all the parents who attended.
Lewisham Refugee & Migrant Network is based in Deptford and provides practical and therapeutic support to migrant women. They provided an employment workshop for parents as part of their outreach work. This gave useful advice on how to start looking for a job, what to include on a CV and ways to use your skills in the volunteering sector.
LRMN also came in for a coffee morning and are providing support to parents in our school on issues such as housing, immigration and benefits. For more information check out LRMN at lrmn.org.uk
What was your first memory of money? Can you really tell the difference between Lidl’s biscuits and those branded biscuits which cost twice as much?
Mustafa from the Social Quaker Action Group came to test our theories around spending and saving money with plenty of money-saving tips along the way which we could all share with each other. A really practical, fun and useful workshop for parents.
