EMOTIONAL AND LEARNING DIFFICULTIES RESOLVED
Ferris Wheel Outreach Learning4Life Programme
Some children struggle with literacy and reading acquisition despite excellent teaching. It’s not just what children learn but how they learn that contributes to successful outcomes. The FerrisWheel Outreach Programme is a unique series of exercises. Developed with over 25 years clinical and classroom experience, the programme aims to switch on neurological activities in ways that are needed for reading, spelling and learning. These exercises stimulate integrated brain activity and engage children in a focused, fun way. Concentration and learning can then happen more easily.
At The FerrisWheel we work to support schools in teaching children how to learn. For many children, learning is stressful. The FerrisWheel Outreach Programme reduces stress levels in relation to learning. The aim of the programme is to make learning fun so that children get more out of the time spent learning and enjoy learning. A structured approach provides teachers and children “How to” of learning. The children learn how to concentrate, memorise, read and spell using our unique approach. This is an invaluable tool for behaviour management, which teachers can harness across the curriculum. The benefits of the programme are far-reaching and long lasting for the children involved. Learning Outcomes are attained more readily. There is significant stress reduction for parents, teachers and students.
