A three-part workshop has invigorated and inspired a number of parents when it comes to helping their children with homework.
The workshop, at Firth School, was based over three sessions and covered tips on reading, writing and maths homework for a group of keen parents and caregivers. Teacher in charge of the workshop, Lesley Johnston, said the sessions were really ing and energising.
Parents Dana Johnson and Jesse Charters agreed.
Both mothers said it was good to be able to see some of the strategies taught in the classroom these days.
‘‘Everyone’s speaking the same language now,’’ Charters said.
‘‘It all benefits the kids in the end,’’ she said.
The workshops were open
excit- to the entire community, not just those with connections to Firth School, Johnston said.
‘‘The sessions were all for the benefit of the children, it was about giving parents confidence in themselves and giving them a lot of ideas about what to do at home.’’ As the workshops were popular and created positive feedback, they will be run in the future.
