Holiday Learning Ideas

Mon 1st Jul. 2019 | 7.00 pm - 8.30 pm
Camp Primary and Nursery School, AL1 5PG

After the long school summer holiday, teachers often talk about the ‘dip’ some children make in their learning, meaning that they have slipped back a few months. How can you as a parent of carer prevent this from happening? In this practical workshop, we share a bank of ideas and activities that can be undertaken at home, at the park, on the plane or even abroad. These are short, simple and effective activities that you can employ with your child to ensure that learning can continue across all curriculum areas. The focus is on fun and your child won’t even realise they are learning!   So, whether on holiday or at home, you can continue to support learning with your child.

Who is this workshop for?

All parents and carers of children currently in Reception and KS1.

In this workshop you will:

Learn how to support your child’s literacy and maths progress in the holidays.

Take home fun, practical ideas and approaches to engage your child.

Reach a number of curriculum areas (including science, history and D&T).
