After Easter we hope to run a healthy bodies, healthy minds course about wellbeing. 


Making Storytime Fun!

This course ran from Sept 18 to November 18. It had lots of practical ideas to make storytime fun. 

These photos show the Mums sharing their own handmade versions of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The Making Storytime Fun course has now finished. Here are our Mums getting their certificates.


"It's been a brilliant 10 weeks" said Michelle the Tameside tutor who has just completed the 'Making Storytime Fun' course with seven St George's parents. 

In just a short time the course has taught them lots of new ways of bringing stories to life and given them new ideas on how to make reading more enjoyable at home.

The children of the parents who attended also came to each session and were able to join in each week and helped to create their own stories and use their imaginations!

All of the parents said how much their confidence has grown with each topic and how helpful Michelle has been. They all really enjoyed the course and look forward to the next one in the New Year.
