Confident parent, confident child
This course helps you build on your knowledge and skills to your children’s self-esteem.
Dear Parents/ Carers,
Recently seven of our parents completed the Phonics and Literacy Course we have had running in school. This was a 10 week course run by Manchester Adult Education Service. All our parents received their certificates with great pride.
All the parents told me that since attending the course they feel a lot more confident using Phonics with their children and feel these sessions have helped them to support their children's learning at home.
When asked what they enjoyed about the sessions comments included: ‘learning through different games’, 'group tasks were fun and good to learn’, ‘being able to explore ideas together’, ‘team bonding and making friends’ and ‘ideas to take home’.
When asked what could be improved about the sessions the only comments made were: ‘longer sessions’ and ‘more sessions’.
Other comments included: ‘the most useful part for me was the way I can support my child to improve his reading skills by using phonics and digraphs’, 'I have a better understanding about phonics and other ways of teaching my child’, ‘I am very glad I came on this course. I have enjoyed myself and learned lots and I am confident I can support my child in various areas of literacy’ and 'the tutor was great, she really went through things with us'.
I would like to thank all our parents for making this course a great success and I am very excited about the courses we have running during the next school year. Look out for these courses being advertised in September 2015.
