The Connection Between Listening Skills and Academic Success
Have you ever felt that your child just isn’t listening? You know they can hear you but they don’t follow instructions well? There are, of course, a number of factors that affect your child’s ability to pay attention, but unless we can improve their ability to listen it can have a significant impact on academic learning both now and in the future.
Luckily there are things you can do to boost listening skills but, as with many things, early intervention is key.
Ms Rachel Nahimas will be running a workshop for parents on Tuesday 2 October at 8.00 a.m. in the Drama Studio.
The workshop “Encouraging our Children to Listen” sets out to explore how we are able to help our children to actively listen to us more. The target audience is parents from FS3 (Reception), Year 1 and Year 2.
