The Shrewsbury & Telford Family Grapevine Area

30th Edition marks 10 years of the Shrewsbury & Telford Family Grapevine! This edition is VERY special to me as with it comes my 10th Birthday! Many things have changed since I started in 2004, not least of which is that my lovely daughter Cherry, “artist in residence” for many of my early editions, is now 15 and steadily heading for Sixth Form - I can’t believe it! Like so many of my treasured Readers over the years, I continue to use the Family Grapevine to find out about all the brilliant things there are to do round here for young people from before they’re even born to when they fly the nest at 18. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I’ve recently made a big decision and become part of the Family Grapevine Franchise, which has meant re-learning quite a lot of what I thought I already knew(!) - you will of course have noticed the new look to the magazine and new logo, but I can also proudly announce that I am now part of the National Family Grapevine website, able to share resources and expertise with other Editors around the country and benefit from all the advantages that that brings. I’m really excited about it and really hope that the the next 10 years will be equally or even more rewarding for myself, my Advertisers and my Readers alike. Cheers everyone!

Family Support & Health Herbal Medicine is the oldest and most widely practised form of medicine in the world. It is the use of plant remedies in the treatment of disease. Medical Herbalists are trained in the same diagnostic skills as conventional doctors, but take a more holistic approach to illness, treating the person not the symptoms. It is safe to use Herbal Medicine for babies and children when prescribed by a Medical Herbalist, and it can be very effective in treating conditions such as colic, constipation, asthma, eczema, glue ear and ear infections, bladder infections, recurrent coughs and colds, hormonal problems, acne and many more. Gail Shakespeare has been a fully qualified Medical Herbalist since 2000, and a Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists. She sees patients of all ages with a wide range of conditions and also has a 0 - 18’s clinic treating babies, children and young adults. Please feel free to contact me, without obligation, by phone or email to discuss if Herbal Medicine would be suitable for you or a member of your family.

We take our children to the dentist every 6 months, usually without sign of any problems. The same routine is advised for children’s eye exams, even if there is no apparent problem. Have them regularly monitored as they grow as eyes can and do change. Two things will be checked – visual performance, and eye health, both of which impact on education and future development. Children’s eye exams are free under the NHS. Having an eye exam does not mean spectacles will be prescribed. It will at least provide confirmation/reassurance that all is well. And if not, there is the opportunity to correct matters early with minimum adverse impact on the child. Should spectacles ever be advised these can also be supplied free. Please contact John Biddle Opticians for a free children’s eye test now: we have branches in Madeley, Wellington, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury.

Hot Cross Cookies You will need: 200g softened butter, plus extra for the trays 100g light muscovado sugar 1 egg 250g plain flour 1 tsp cinnamon 2 tsp baking powder 100g sultanas 200g white chocolate chips

Under Ones Clubs

How to do it: Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Lightly butter a few baking trays. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and egg until smooth. Sift in the flour, cinnamon and baking powder, then combine to make a dough. Add the sultanas and 100g of the white chocolate, and mix to combine. Roll lumps of dough into balls the size of golf balls. Flatten these onto the trays, leaving enough space between each for them to expand. Bake for 10 mins until golden (you may have to do this in batches). Remove the cookies from the trays and cool on wire racks. Melt the remaining white chocolate in the microwave on Low in 20-second bursts. Using a small piping bag or a teaspoon, carefully drizzle a cross on top of each cookie. Leave to set before eating.

Language learning - why you’re never too young to start.... As a parent I’m so proud when my children learn something new. My proudest moments recently have been listening to my two year old speak and sing to me in not one, but three languages. It makes me doubly proud as I am unable to speak another language fluently. I’ve always been determined that my children would break free from the ‘everyone speaks English’ mould and in the process of enabling them I have discovered that the advantages to language learning are vast. Being able to communicate with people on holiday is merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the advantages it bestows. Studies have shown children who learn languages have higher scores in reading, maths and writing. It is thought to boost a child’s confidence and their desire for new discoveries. Children who speak two languages find multitasking easier and are more flexible and creative in their thinking. It helps children to embrace ideas and customs from other cultures and being bilingual can also improve your vocabulary and grammar in your native language. Young children have the innate ability to learn languages. It is something they do naturally without any conscious effort. The optimum time for learning a second language is thought to be between birth and 3 years. Obviously languages can be successfully learnt when starting at any age but our natural ability to learn declines dramatically from 7 years. Sadly this is often the very earliest that schools introduce language education which helps explain why we fall well behind other nations in our language abilities. For young children play must be at the heart of learning. They learn best whilst having fun. Children can be immersed in a language using singing, stories, games and movement and they absorb it without even realising they are learning. As with most skills languages are best learnt in person. DVDs and TV programmes cannot compare to learning from a native or fluent teacher. I have a great time taking my sons to both French and Spanish Lingotot classes which I now organise in my local area. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly and easily the toddlers start to join in the classes. If only it was as easy for us adults!

CLAIRE’s Crafty Corner with Nanny Tricks Art

Here’s an activity for children aged 7+ (or to do with your younger child)

Create a Woven Mat You will need: 1. A cardboard box (the size and shape of the box will determine the end result). 2. Lollypop sticks (available from all craft shops). 3. Ribbon or wool (of similar thicknesses). 4. Tape and scissors. Activity: 1. Tape the lollypop sticks securely at regular intervals along two sides leaving at least a third of the stick protruding above the top of the box. I chose the shorter sides but either works. It is important at this point to ensure the sticks are held firmly in place with LOTS of tape. 2. Tie a strip of your ribbon or wool (this needs to be long enough to complete the whole process of creating the warps) to the first stick at one end and take along the length of the box to the stick at the other end and wrap around the back of the stick only. Repeat this until you have used all the sticks. Tie off the other end to the last stick. 3. Starting at one end of the box tie your first choice of ribbon or wool to the first warps and begin to weave under and over. When you reach the end come back the other way going over and under weaving opposing warps to begin the weave pattern. It is important during the weaving to try not to pull too tight causing the mat to bunch together in the middle. 4. To change colour or add another piece of ribbon etc. simply tie the two ends and continue until all the weaving is complete. 5. Tie the end securely in place to the last warp before sliding carefully off the lollypop sticks. 6. Tidy up any loose ends and think of a use for your beautiful mat. Further Ideas: • I chose shades of red on one end and contrasting colours on the other as a demonstration. The variations are endless and yours to create • Use strong, straight twigs instead of lollypop sticks. • Make lots of mats and join them together. • Use thinly cut strips of material as the weaving fabric. • Thread poles through the loops at the ends as you take them off the loom to create a wall hanging.

Daycare Nurseries Katie’s Kids Nursery Opening Spring 2014 Inspired by her boys (twins of 8 and eldest son 12) and driven by her own high ideals, Katie Wellington of Katie’s Kids Kitchen fame, has set up a new day care nursery in Monkmoor, Shrewsbury which will be opening this Spring. The nursery will provide superb childcare for babies and children up to thirteen years old, will be open from 7.30 am until 7 pm, has a large outdoor space for playtime and outdoor learning (including greenhouse, veg area, fruit-trees and weekly gardening classes) and of course will provide excellent cooking facilities and great food as you would expect given Katie’s extremely high house-keeping standards! Katie says: “It is extremely important to me that the nursery is like an extension of your own parenting so I have spent many hours ensuring that every detail has been catered for from a beautiful and peaceful sleep room to a replica Katies Kids Kitchen for the children to enjoy. Your children’s imagination can flourish in our superb role play and dressing up area, the childen benefiting from the use of the latest educational toys, sensory lighting and music. There is a computer suite for the pre-school children as well as a fantastic art and crafts room, wonderful cooking area and much more. We have a designated Baby room, Toddler room, Pre-school room, Sleep area and After School, Breakfast and Saturday Clubs... One of the days weekly I will be doing 'Katie’s kids kitchen' at the Nursery which I am thrilled to be able to offer. In association with local farms and other attractions, I have managed to create a programme of fabulous activities for the Saturday and holiday care that we offer and we have our own minibus to take the children there and back safely. I am extremely excited to be able to offer this secure, safe fun childcare facility to you and look forward to hearing from you. There will be open days which we will keep you updated on.
