Go Ape!

from Tessa Thomas:

The only way is up when you're one of the Go Ape team - and several were out testing the wires, walkways and ladders last week in preparation for the public opening today (March 18th 2017) of the new Ally Pally facility. Pictured is Charlotte, a 28 year old aerialist who worked at Disneyland and Up At The O2 as well as the Orbit at the Olympic Park (80m up in the air!) before joining Go Ape. Rest assured, it's all fun to watch if you're not as at home in the air as she is...

A 45 mins class for children aged 0-6 including singing, drama dancing, games, craft, workbook activity and stories all in Spanish or French.

Spanish starts at 10.15 and French starts at 11.00 on Wednesday and Saturday morning ta the Woodman in Highgate.

Classes are interactive and fun, yet based on sound educational research. A colourful support booklet with language-based ideas for activities to do at home is included. Following our carefully tried and tested methodology, your child could leave the very first class responding to French or Spanish! 

Learning is through songs, stories, games, drama and play. We teach the adults who attend at the same time as the children and you don't have to have any prior knowledge of a language. We will never put you on the spot or ask anyone to speak until they are ready!

 There is an easy access from Highgate Tube Station or by bus from Crouch End and Muswell Hill. Free parking is available on the Woodman's car park.

You can also book one-to-one or small group classes with us,at a time convenient for you.

Bulb planting in the Community Gardens

On Saturday 3rd Dec. there will be the regular PGRA Community Gardening session to plant bulbs in the Albert Road flower beds.

Can you spare some time on Saturday December 3rd to help us plant a HUGE quantity of spring bulbs?

We are hoping to repeat the splendid display of colour that we achieved last year.  We have a large number of beautiful hyacinth, daffodil, narcissi tulips and new perennial's to plant so we would appreciate the help of as many as possible.  Don't worry if you can only help for a short time - all help will be appreciated.

 Please meet at Albert Road/Crescent Rise beds between 11.00a.m.-1.00p.m 

Alternatively, come and help to complete bulb planting at Palace Gates Road/Crescent Road Triangle on Wednesday 30th at 10.30, for about an hour. Although we have already planted some bulbs in The Triangle beds, we have now received the bulbs supplied free to community groups from Haringey.

If you live in the Palace Gates area, you have probably noticed the raised beds around the Triangle, and the beds around the Albert Road mini-roundabout, because they are full of flowers - not the usual boring evergreen bushes typical of local authority planting!  This is because they are maintained by local people, who meet generally at 11am on the first Saturday in the month to weed, plant, prune, mulch ... Do come and join in (and meet some more neighbours while you are about it). Even if you can only spare half an hour, this would be very welcome - no experience necessary, and kids welcome. Details of exactly which beds they will be working on at the next meeting are posted on this website.  For more information, reply to this post, or send a personal message to Molly Doran.

Lingotot French and Spanish Classes for Babies and Toddlers @ the Maid of Muswell on Friday and Saturday mornings.
Bonjour! ¡Hola!

My name is Lily and I am a creative and successful teacher with Qualified Teacher Status. With almost a decade’s experience of teaching Modern Foreign Languages  to adults and children in the UK, Belgium, France and Spain, multilingual education has become a way of life for me. I grew up in a bilingual French/Spanish household both in Belgium (Brussels) and Spain (Santander), and my partner is British – our son is himself being raised to be trilingual. 

After the birth of our son, I have become more and more interested in multilingual education for little ones, and convinced of its efficiency. I then decided to join Lingotot to share this exciting journey with more families and children!

All research into language development shows that in the first years of life children “learn” (or acquire) different languages with very little effort. In fact, with the right amount of exposure they can acquire a second language almost in a mother-tongue-way, far faster than any adult. Therefore, giving children the opportunity to learn a second language early in life seems to be nothing but beneficial for them.
I believe in introducing children to languages at early age through play,songs and fun!
Would you like to try it out ? Book your free taster now by sending a mail to lily@lingotot.com
 
Come and have great fun learning with your baby, toddler or pre-school child in a super-friendly Friday or Saturday morning class...
Spanish 10.15 to 11.00
French   11.00 to 11.45
Please check our website for more information: http://www.lingotot.com/about/alexandra-palace-and-muswell-hill
Sessions last for 45 minutes. First Lesson is FREE. Write to lily@lingotot.com or phone 07864 658389.
