Children and Parent Learning - What's On 22-23

Summer School 2022

Make me a Movie

 

Thank you to all the Parents/Carers, Aunts and Grandparents who have attended 6 weeks of Family Learning.

 

Each week the tutor Liz Shaw gave the adults some tips and tools to engage their children’s imagination when creating characters and a script to make their own short Theatrical style movie.

Each made up movie set & characters were unique whether it was a film about an extinct dinosaur park or two minions and friends going to the cinema in a yellow taxi - each script and character had been written and created by the children and their parents/carers.

The adults and children then set about making, cutting, gluing, sticking and painting various bits of card & fabric together to bring their movie set, characters and script to life.

After a short rehearsal and only two ‘takes’ of the clapper board each and every family had a short movie in production. A huge well done to everyone.

Escape Room

 

Some of our parents were invited by Family Learning to take park in the ‘Pilot edition’ of the Escape Room workshop.

 

The parents and their children had to locate the missing Family Learning Trophy that was ‘stolen by criminals’ and hidden in a locked chest in the room by completing a series of problem solving puzzles, riddles, equations and by deciphering codes through reading literature and rhymes.

The clock was ticking as the families raced against time to find the 1st clue. The 1st clue lead onto the 2nd clue and so on and so on. To complete the final task all the families had to work as one team to solve an anagram of numbers that matched the combination lock.  After two fun filled hours the families entered the correct sequence of numbers into the combination lock to open the chest bursting with sweets & treats as well as rescuing the Trophy and handing it back to its rightful owners. Well done to all our families who took part.

Sew me a story

Thank you to all the Parents/Carers, Aunts and Grandparents who have attended 6 weeks of Family Learning.

Each week the tutor Liz Shaw gave the adults some tips and tools to engage their children’s imagination when creating characters and stories. Each made up character was unique whether it was a hero with a superpower, villain with menacing intent or magical friendly Dinosaur, all of them were named and a story about their world was told and written by the children.

The adults then, based on the description from the children set about making and sewing felt puppets and soft toys to bring the characters and story to life. The adults enjoyed learning many new creative skills such as drawing, embroidery stitches and sewing.

Winter Workshop

Thank you to all the parents who came to our Winter Crafts Workshop on Wednesday 11th December 2019.

It was lovely to see so many of you having fun making some amazing Christmas decorations. The children were squealing with excitement to learn that their parents/carers, aunts & grandparents had come to join them in a Family Learning workshop.

Christmas music was playing softly in the background, mince pies, brownies and coffee were served and lots of chitter chatter and giggles were heard. Here are just a few pictures to share.
