Comic Youth Groups for Children and Young People

 

Children and young people are relating to and interacting with comics, characters, films, media and tv programmes more than ever and with the Comic Con annual event in Liverpool, pop culture has become a key way to reach out to children and young people and communicate with them in a creative and artistic way…. 

 

I wanted to share some information with you regarding an organisation called Comics Youth who are based in The Tempest Building, L2 2DT, Liverpool City Centre. 

Their base offers a great environment for children and young people, to meet and get creative, with wonderful art work rooms and access to a great café downstairs.

Comics Youth run free creative art project groups for children and young people of the Liverpool City Region who are underrepresented, inspiring them to become young creators, build their self-esteem and create stories about real life issues which can affect their lives.  Such as inequality, physical and mental ill health, special educational needs, ethnicity and identity.  They are funded by BBC Children In Need and The National Lottery. 

Free Groups available for children and young people are: 

Comics Workshops –

Saturdays -  Children aged 8-13 years – every week -  Children work on creative writing, art and comic design on themed subjects.

 

Saturday afternoon workshops for 14-25 year olds – similar creative work group and often combines visits to museums and theatres too.

 

Thursday Evenings LGBT – Creative Group  ( The LGBT +Me Steering Group have just helped to design the children’s book LGTB +Me “The Sleepover”)

“The book is a resource aimed at children and young people aged 8-13 years who are beginning to question their identity.  It aims to show caregivers how beneficial having an open and welcoming outlook can be, as well as reassure young readers that it’s normal to question these things”

If you are interested in accessing a copy of the book for your project, school, a parent or child or young person you are supporting, please contact Anna or Rhiannon by email below.

Youth Connect 5 Programme: 

3rd,4th,5th,10th,11th January 2022 (12-2pm)

 

Youth Connect 5 is a free course that gives parents and carers the knowledge, skills and understanding to help children develop strong emotional wellbeing through resilience-building techniques.

These techniques will strengthen your child’s ability to adapt well to adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or even stress, skills that will remain with them into adulthood. We like to think of it as being able to bounce back from difficult experiences.

Youth Connect 5 will teach you the skills you can then draw upon to both build your own resilience, but most importantly your child’s.

During the course you will:

1. Understand young people’s mental health

2. Think about what makes us thrive

3. Develop family resilience

4. Understand why we feel the way we do

5. Develop skills to support your children.

Please see attached letter with information on holiday activity programme (including free meals) over the summer holidays.

It is vital parents and carers actively monitor what their children are viewing online in order to protect them and also to ensure their child’s own behaviours are appropriate.

 

Parents and carers are advised to watch the following short videos created in New Zealand:

 

Keep It Real Online - Pornography

Keep it Real Online - Bullying

Keep it Real Online – Grooming

Keep it Real Online – Parental Controls and Supervision

 

Parents and carers should also ensure ‘parental settings’ are in place not just on smartphones but also on any device that connects to the internet.

 

Merseyside Police recently shared the following message  with the whole community:

 

“We would strongly advise parents to be satisfied that they know who their children are engaging with, be that via social media or through gaming on Xboxes and PlayStation and want to raise awareness of the importance of setting parental controls on computers, games consoles and electronic devices to keep children safe, so they are not exposed to potentially harmful and inappropriate material online.”

 

Guidance about parental controls can be found here:

 

Internet Matters - parental controls

NSPCC – parental controls

 

The NSPCC have partnered with O2 to provide 02 Guru where parents can seek further practical advice.

Due to the current situation with the pandemic and the increase in positive cases again in the Liverpool City Region, the Year 6 Transition Day which had been scheduled for 7th July 2021 has unfortunately had to be cancelled.

 

I would urge all parents to check the website of the secondary school to which their child is transitioning to see what information is there regarding transition.

 

Some schools are forwarding information to us and when this happens we will also post on our website.

 

Stay safe.

 

Mr Doyle

Please see the message below,

 

The Marine Society and Sea Cadets (MSSC) are going to be offering FREE boating sessions to hundreds of children, aged 9-14, at our boating station in Crosby over the summer holidays, from 26th July to 29th August. Our aim is to encourage a love of the water and give children opportunities that they would not otherwise receive and haven’t experienced before.

 

We accept children from all backgrounds and are especially interested in supporting those from low income backgrounds with free opportunities from around the Liverpool area. They will get the opportunity to gain boating qualifications and if they wish to continue developing their skills, we will happily help them find their nearest Sea Cadet unit to join.

 

Attached is a poster, timetable and joining form link that can be completed by parents and we look forward to meeting your amazing pupils this summer. For the first week we can only take half day bookings for an individual, after that the children can book for whole days.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

How do children learn through play?

We have 20 places on the Welcome to Play course via zoom for parents and carers with caring responsibilities of under-fives beginning on Thursday 13th May for 6 weeks. Sign up and get an 'art picnic' full of creative resources. A wonderful course full of fun and creative ideas for playing together.

Delivered weekly by Dr Denise Wright, a creative play specialist and Chris Cavanagh, Liverpool's parenting coordinator.

This course is free and is only for parents/carers with Liverpool post codes.

Given the current economic position and number of increased redundancies, some children may become eligible for FSM after school has closed for the summer.  See below  for advice on what to do if families become eligible for FSMs during the summer holiday period. 

 

If your circumstances change and you think your child is eligible for free school meals after school has closed for the summer break you can apply for FSMs using the link below

If you are eligible, you will receive a notification confirming this.  During school’s summer holiday period, you will be sent vouchers by Liverpool City Council on a fortnightly basis.

The Red Cross have new resources that families may find useful activities to be completed over the summer.  Please see links below.
