What is Chill & Chat?
Join us every Wednesday morning for an informal and informative chat over a cup of tea with other parents. Each term, the parents choose the topics that they would like covered. This can be anything from festivals, craft, cooking or educational information. Parents say that that it is fun, friendly and that importantly it gives them time for themselves in a busy week. Younger children are welcome to attend with parents.
I am the school's Pastoral Support Lead which means that I can help with a variety of issues including parenting, behaviour management and adult education courses. I can also direct you to support with housing, food vouchers and can refer to other agencies.
You will find us in the Nurture hut from 8.50am until 11.30am every week. Check here for details of up and coming weekly themes.
Everyone is welcome!
This week at Chill and Chat:
On November 15th we will be looking at reluctant readers. I have lots of ideas and tips to try as well the Book Trust recommended books for 0-10's, an activity list and a fun reading handout. I will also have some examples of different types of books to try with your children. everyone is a reader, it's just finding the right book!

Free Book Swap
The book swap box is a new feature in the Nurture Hut and will be available to use every Wednesday. This is a great way to replenish your bookshelves as the children grow older or as you get tired of the same old stories.
