Family Learning Group
“When parents are involved in their children’s education at home, they do better in school.”
Family Learning takes place in school on Wednesday mornings and a variety of courses are on offer for parents/grandparents and carers of children attending St Joseph’s RC Infants School. The aim is to get involved with your children/grandchildren’s learning, based on topics covered from Reception to Year 2.
Previous courses have been -Keeping up the Kids Maths / Literacy and Playing with Language – based on early development of language and how to support early Literacy skills.
The sessions are fun and informal with the children joining us for the last part of the 2 hour class. We make lots of games and activities to take home and play as a family and it is a great opportunity to meet other parents and grandparents.
Details of new Family Learning courses in school will be available from the school office and by flyers sent out to everyone.
