Parents in school

 

Parents and family members were invited into school to take part in our Parent and Child Cookery Workshop on Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 10.00-11.00am.

 

This was a practical session aimed at helping parents and children sharing some learning experiences together alongside others in their child’s class. There was opportunities to talk to staff to learn how we encourage literacy, communication and interaction with our pupils though cooking tasks. A fun time was had by all. We gave each family a bag of ingredients, a recipe and a checklist to make the healthy muffins at home again later. Parents were surprised to see that their children coped with the new experience very well, and that the checklist and pictures helped them to understand what they needed to do. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session and many went along to our school café afterwards to see how those cooking skills can develop and what their children could do when they are in Sixth Form here at Beverley School.

 

Parents and family members were invited into school to take part in our Parent and child Sensory Workshop on Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 1.30-2.00pm.

This was a practical session aimed at helping parents and children sharing some learning experiences together alongside others in their child’s class. There was opportunities to talk to staff to learn how we encourage communication and interaction with our pupils though a sensory story session. We set up sensory stations for the “Bear Hunt story”. This included wet stuff such as brown gloopy mud, a water tray for paddling and shaving foam snow to touch and explore. We also made a forest with real leaves, swishy swoshy grass with tactile materials, a cave with a soft toy bear and a giant mattress bed with blankets to hide at the end. Parents and pupils enjoyed following Michael Rosen reading the story on the big screen in the Hall and experienced each sensory station in turn as they were mentioned in the story. Staff, Parents and pupils all had a really positive session with happy engaged children we get increased interaction opportunities. We plan to make sensory story session a regular shared event so that primary classes can continue to work in this way in the future.
