Learning Skills For Independence

In Learning Skills, we have been working in small groups to learn about phonics, computer skills and reading in groups. We have also been continuing with lessons on Literacy Planet and Mathletics, while also re-introducing Reading Eggs. We have been joined by a new volunteer, Nigel, on Fridays who the participants have welcomed with open arms. A month ago, 16 participants, volunteers and staff started a community Auslan class here at SWARA. Linda, our tutor is wonderful teacher and makes the lessons lots of fun. The participants particularly liked playing a game of Chinese Whispers that was played by signing out an action to the next person instead or whispering something. All of those involved are enjoying learning Auslan and are already using what they have learnt here at SWARA.
