Mr Fil Came demonstrates the challenges children can face to learn
A large group of people including parents, teachers throughout the whole school and the heads attended a PTA meeting in the Old Library to hear a talk on educating children of all abilities. The speaker was internationally renowned education speaker, Mr. Fil Came from Learning Works.
The evening included a presentation, videos, as well as a series of interactive exercises designed to show parents the difficulties some children face. These included carrying out simple tasks with gloves on which demonstrated some of the issues that children with dyslexia may face and learning to juggle, a task designed to show how taking on new instructions and undertaking a new task at the same time may confuse those with dyslexia.
Future PTA meetings will feature an evening on IT and Internet safety and a presentation on how parents can create the correct atmosphere for their children as they prepare for exams.
