A series of free workshops will be running at Bishopston Library  on Thursday April 5. 

The first workshop, called Telling the Time, is for 5 to 7 year olds and will run from 2pm – 3pm. The second workshop - Put a Spring in Your Step - is suitable for seven to nine-year-olds and will run from 3.30 to 4.30pm.

Eloise Wyke, from Explore Learning, said: “Our workshops are a fun way for children to practise tricky areas and skills that they have already covered at school. They get their own workbook to complete and take home to show their parents.”  

Telling the Time: This workshop revises how to tell the time. 

The next step is then practising telling the time with analogue clocks. The children learn to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour, draw the hands on a clock face to show these times and compare and sequence intervals of time. The group will also learn to tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter to/past the hour and draw the hands on the clock face to show these times.

Put a spring in your step: This workshop has been designed to work on the most common areas of difficulty in English comprehension – learning to draw inferences. 

The mythical stories are intended to make the workshop to be fun and energetic, but still focus on these main skills.

It draws on inferences such as characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions and justifying inferences with evidence. 

The children will look at predicting what might happen from details stated and implied.
