Catch Up: Literacy sessions at the Community Trust
Aim of Catch Up To help Community Trust service users improve their reading and spelling skills using the literacy intervention programme, Units of Sound, with the main aim of helping those get back into work, enrol on courses and boost their confidence.
What is Units of Sound? Units of Sound is a structured, online literacy intervention programme that covers reading, spelling and writing skills. Units of Sound encourages independent learning.
Who is Catch Up for? Catch Up is for anyone who is, for whatever reason, behind in their reading, spelling and writing and wishes to improve their skills and confidence in literacy. The sessions will benefit people who, for example:
have missed out on a lot of schooling
are dyslexic/ have hidden learning difficulties
have English as a second language
have generally always struggled with their reading and/ or spelling
What will a typical session look like? A typical 45mins session would cover:
Students need to be able to read and spell three letter words as a minimum.
Students need to attend sessions regularly to see progress. Two missed sessions in a row would result in their place being offered to someone else.

We have so many varieties of nationalities on this estate
For someone from all nationalities to cook would be great
Weekends is sports on the box so why not come in and join the fun

You can see the passion in some of the guys faces when they are watching their team

Hey hows it going?
From now on there will be regular blogs by me so keep a look out..
The last 2 weeks or so we have had the pleasure of The Irene Taylor Trust
come to the centre with their music project which has had the company of a few guys from the estate coming up with new songs that they can perform together..
They came up with the band name SOUTH SIDERS
as they are all from South London, Each of them have their own talent which when combined together make a good sound
On Thursday 6th April they had their first performance together at the community centre which went down very well
They performed songs such as MKH which to me is a banger and very catchy chorus that everyone can sing together even getting the audience involved, Other songs are LOVE ME GIRL, ON A LEVEL & WHO AM I
I can see big things happening for these guys if they keep up with what they are doing and writing songs as i believe they have the talent to do so
BAND MEMBERS:MKH, RAMZ, MUGZZ & DONNIE MC
Many thanks goes out to The Irene Taylor Trust
for coming to the centre with their project and working with these young men
"A visit from Shane always wants to make you grin...when he popped in this week no one could hide their absolute delight!
Not wanting to compromise all those years of training...and training...and fitness ..and training and sheer bloody hard work, Shane is now building his career using all those physical and social skills he learned whilst riding with CK
) and the Peckham BMX Club
. Earning good money, keeping fit and progressing from BMXing to bike rider to "ped" rider to a (very soon to be!) car driver.
What a difference a job can make....but then maybe you have to have known Shane from a kid (check out Home Turf in our About Us - Videos
) to share in our joy!
Special thanks to Shane's family, CK
), Delroy Rankin
from Community Trust Housing (also our main sponsor), and those who supported him when times were tough. First rate work chaps...well done!"
