Workshop: Practical Strategies for Parents

Three members of our Learning Support Department, Ms Morley, Ms White and Ms O’Brien ran a Parent Workshop this morning on how to support children at home with practical strategies in Literacy and Maths.

The workshop was very well attended and parents enjoyed listening to discussions about ways to make DCIS students more confident readers and mathematicians.

We looked at how an understanding of the reading process can be used to support children's reading, recognising the importance of 'getting ready to read', self-monitoring and self-correcting, and how we can prompt children to apply various cues. The teachers talked to parents about the importance of supporting learning following the VAK concept; mixing up Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic activities, as well as introducing them to a variety of concrete materials and a selection of online resources and apps to use at home.
