Some of our parents are accessing the ‘Helping your child in EYFS’ course led by Halton Borough Council Family Learning Team.
Mrs Lawton said, “Working together in partnership with our parents is a priority at Palace Fields. The course Sarah has developed for our parents is fun and informative and will help them support their child outside of the classroom.”
During the five week course they will be concentrating on different subjects: maths, reading and writing, personal, social and emotional development, physical development, understanding the world, art & design and how the classroom works. In addition to this they are given great practical advice on how to help and encourage their children to develop in all areas. The parents spend part of the afternoon working as a group with tutor Sarah Wild, after which their children join them for the last part of the session to carry out practical activities.
One of our mums said, “I have found the course has really helped me to understand what the children are doing in class and what I can do at home to support and encourage their learning.”
