INTERGENERATIONAL SUSTAINABLE SKILLS CAFE
We are delighted to announce that we have been selected to take part in a new and innovative project delivered by Liverpool John Moores University. Once a month we will come together with older adults in the community and learn how to sew, knit, crochet and embroidery.
Aims of the café:-
· To provide meaningful social roles for children, parents and older adults
· To encourage older adults to utilise their experiences and skills
· Improve children’s personal, social and emotional development
· Helps forge strong school/parent partnerships
· Boost children’s listening and attention, receptive language and social communication
· The transmission of knowledge and skills from one generation to another
· Empower older adults to take an active part in their local community/engage with younger members of their community
Families Connect Year 2.
Families Connect focuses on supporting parents and children to learn together.
It helps parents to support their children’s learning in three key areas:
The eight-week programme provides a series of activities, techniques and games that parents and carers can do with their children at home.
Each activity encourages parents and children to spend quality time together by talking about specific topics and reflecting on what they already do to support their children’s learning.
Parents also discuss the science behind the programme’s activities. These informal workshops invite parents to explore new games and approaches that might help them to support their child’s learning at home.
