LUC Enhances Learning through Field Trips and Parent Workshop

Every year, Little Urban Centre Preschool hosts two school-wide field trips, which provide excellent opportunities for parents to meet with other parents in the school. On 10 October, LUC students and parents had a great day out on their first field trip for this year. Around 130 families attended and enjoyed a fun and educational trip to the China Maritime Museum at Dishui Lake. The ten classes each had a museum guide to show them around the museum and give information on some of the displays. Students were able to see what the boats looked like in the past and how they have evolved over time. After lunch, families had some free time to explore the rest of the museum, and a clay-modeling activity for all of the children.

On 15 October, LUC held a workshop for the school parents, called “Literacy at Home”. The workshop, facilitated by LUC principal Aaron Gallery, gave parents guidance on how to create a literacy-rich environment at home in order to support students’ literacy away from school. Gallery gave the parents some specific tips on how they can support their child home in the areas of speaking, reading and writing. There was a table of sample materials for parents to take a look at, for example some books from The Oxford Reading Tree that are used for the reading program, and some toys and games that parents can easily use at home to help their children with speaking, reading and writing. Parents were able to take away a summary handout of the presentation that included some recommended websites and apps that they can try at home. Over thirty parents attended the workshop.
