Money Matters| Fight Back Against Parking Fines

Walking towards your car after a lovely evening out, and you see a bright yellow sticker on your car.  As you get closer towards your car, you realise it is a parking ticket!  This has happened to me on many occasions unfortunately.

Studies have shown that a small proportion of the public are appealing against penalty charge notices (PCN), allowing local authorities and private companies to make millions a year from drivers.

Kyle Lettman ‘Your Body’ Music Review/Video

I was one of the many who was waiting for Kyle Lettman to make a much needed return to the music scene. After FDM 03 disbanded in 2010, both Jermaine Riley and Varren Wade made a welcome return to the music world as solo music artists with both flying the flag for UK music. However, it was noticed that Kyle was no where to be seen. However, like most talented musicians, taking time on a project is the key to its eventual success and from Kyle’s debut offering it is clear that there is much more on the horizon from this ever rising talent.

In-spirational Book Review| Unbelieveable By Jessica Ennis-Hill

‘Unbelievable’ is a glittering autobiographical account charting the rise to prominence of Great Britain’s sporting golden girl, Jessica Ennis-Hill. The inspiring life story articulately recounts both the euphoric highs, with the heart-breaking lows – sustaining an injury on the eve of Beijing 2008, the gold medal heptathlon triumphs at London 2012, experiencing bullyism during school years, to Ennis-Hill’s blissful matrimony with long-time boyfriend, Andy Hill.

Ennis-Hill has an expressive way with words, without superficially pretentious treacle – journalism was a secondary option to athletics for the athletics hero – in vividly allowing readers to vicariously listen, visualize and truly understand her inner voice as an author; the solid story-telling throughout the gripping ‘Unbelievable’ (The Sunday Times top ten bestseller) is for both sporting fans, and for those longing to gain insight – and motivation – into becoming a bonifide champion in life after profound obstacles.

Quote of the Month: Surround Yourself With Valuable People

“When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.”

I love this quote for many reasons. The people that you keep around you are important to your own wellbeing, I’ve spent many adult years working out who I am and although I haven’t figured it all out yet one thing I am certain of is that people that I have around me are good people.

Osborne Critiques| The Latest Football News

With a few games gone in the season, everyone has been predicting who would be up in the top 4/5. Teams like Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City are impressing while Manchester Utd haven’t had the best of starts so far.

Southampton have made a fantastic start sitting nicely in the top 5; whether they can maintain it will be fascinating to see.

In-spire LS Parenting| Mummy Kira: An Introduction to EYFS

Hi Mummy’s and Daddy’s, my name is Kira. I have worked in the childcare industry for 12 years now, and I’m a mummy to a beautiful cheeky 2 year old.

I am the brand new columnist for In-spire LS Magazine and I will be dealing with the diverse subject matter that is parenting. In this comprehensive column I will aim to answer and questions you may have. It is here to help and support you with the number of issues that may arise; particularly for new parents.

Kira & Savannah

 

A number of things we will look at to help parents each month will be:

 

  • Children in Childcare: What they are learning, whether this be within nurseries, preschool, nanny’s child-minders, or even what you could help your child learn as a stay at home parent?
  • Children’s Fashion: The must have cute outfits.
  • Menu of the Month: Scrummy, yummy easy foods to prepare.
  • Ask Kira: Any questions that you want to get off your chest or any help you may need… for example ‘Potty Training’

 

Childcare:

Do you wonder what your child is doing when you drop them off in the mornings? Will they actually be learning anything valuable at nursery?

All childcare establishments follow a learning guideline called ‘EYFS’ Early Years Foundation Stage. This first column will just give you a brief outline of what the EYFS means and its purpose, then every other column after that we will look at the principles, and what children should be learning.

So What Is The EYFS?

Children develop quickly in the early years, and early years practitioners aim to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life. Children have a right, spelled out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the child, to provision which enables them to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender.

EYFS In-spire LS

Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them. Development is not an automatic process, however. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relations and enabling environments.

This was just quick introduction to what we will be looking at, and of course answering any questions you may have surrounding these learning requirements.
