GROWTH continues at FLAG (Families Learning and Growing), with six new families joining the group.
Coupled with attendance from existing members, weekly participation has averaged 10 families.
Towards the end of Term 1 there was a focus on Easter; prior to that children (and parents/carers) enjoyed participating in craft activities linked to classics like ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Puss in Boots’, as well as hearing each story.
From ‘Jack in the Beanstalk’ came the idea of creating a ‘beanstalk’ to represent the FLAG members and their links to each other, with each child having their own’ leaf’. Children continue to enjoy looking at this visual symbol of their ‘FLAG family’ and take delight in identifying their individual leaf.
During this current term the children are working with ‘recycled craft’ –constructing everyday items from various sized boxes they’ve painted in earlier FLAG sessions.
Now into its second decade, FLAG is keen to continue providing a much welcomed service to families. Earlier in the year a survey was given to families, asking for their input around future planning ideas.
Responses have been encouraging with requests for guest speakers and other information on specific topics, as well as continued fun for children.
