African drumming and poetry at HeadSpace Efford!

July 11, 2012

Image

Our younger group had a great time at HeadSpace this week, Ghanian Katsiki drummers who visited us to mark the Olympic celebrations came to Efford Library to teach young people drumming and African dance. By the end of the session the group were drumming 3 different beats and a dance routine independently!

The older group session was more chilled out, with magnetic and Haikube poetry. Conor wrote the poem below which he named ‘Money’. The group also completed our Future of libraries consultation survey and discussed controversial books, one young person suggested we organise a worldwide debate!

Image

Next week the younger group will be creating their own musical shakers, inspired by Katsiki drummers and the older group will be designing their own temporary tattoo designs from library books.

Until next week…

HeadSpace agony aunts

May 30, 2012

Image

Last week at HeadSpace young people responded to emails and letters to teen magazines, such as Shout, Sugar, Bliss and Mizz. We enlarged and copied the questions and the group answered honestly, writing their advice on brightly coloured post it notes. We put together a display and pinned them up on the library display boards.

This week we made some jubliee bunting for the Diamond Jubilee Street Party taking place from 2-5pm on Tuesday 5th June at Torridge Way, outside Efford Library. Photos of the bunting and the event to follow.

Have a great bank holiday weekend, from all of us at HeadSpace!

HeadSpace health & fitness week

May 16, 2012

Yesterday’s HeadSpace health & fitness session included a belly dancing workshop in the library. Sharon taught us the importance warming up before exercise, good posture and how learning to belly dance can improve self confidence.

Image

Image

After our workshop it was time to relax with a healthy fruit smoothie. Young people each filled a cup with a range of ingredients and took it in turns to blend them up. Combinations included strawberry, banana and cranberry juice, and grapefruit, pineapple juice and blueberries.

Image

Young people want more belly dancing workshops, and asked Sharon questions about how she became a belly dancer.

Next week’s session will focus on our Role models and we will become agony aunts, answering dilemmas from problem pages in Teen magazines!

Retro games at HeadSpace

May 10, 2012

Our HeadSpace session this Tuesday evening celebrated all things 80s retro. The group had a great time reading the instructions and working out how to get started. Can you name the games? (Clues in the photos).

We ask for feedback from young people after every session, out of 26 young people most said it was good or great, one young person said “that session was off the hook!”.

Next week’s session is Health, fitness and wellbeing, and includes a bellydancing workshop and smoothie making, using our smoothie recipe books.
