Teaching at The Leeds Children's Hospital

Teaching staff and Learning Mentors at Leeds Children’s Hospital work very hard to ensure children in hospital continue their education by making lessons relevant, engaging and fun. They teach at the bedside and in the Learning Zone. Teachers deliver one to one lessons or group sessions in the core subjects in the Learning Zone. Students can also take part in cooking lessons, arts and crafts and keep up to date with technology. Teaching staff also get involved with hospital run awareness events like Wig Wednesday and Hand Hygiene. Music Mike comes in to the hospital on Wednesdays to play Ukuleles with students – this is always fun. Maybe we will uncover a hidden talent! Members of staff from the Leeds Discovery Centre also come in and show artefacts and old objects to students and explain what they are. Displays in the Learning Zone are always colourful and informative thanks to our artistic volunteers and staff. Summer activities also take place in the first two weeks of August. There is always a theme. 2016 was Olympics and The Rain forest. This year included Pirates and 'under the sea'. See separate item.
