    EPR/PL001     JUNIOR MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIP (Learning Skills research)
Sponsorship is sought for the Junior Memory Championship, which works with schools to promote memory skills for children. The Junior Memory Championship is the only nationwide memory championship for primary schools in the UK. Now in its seventh year, it is an important educational initiative bringing valuable memory skills to the forefront of learning. In its first six years it has reached over 61,000 children. Over the past two years, the Junior Memory Championship has enjoyed some substantial media coverage in TESPro, Guardian Teachers Network, The Times and on BBC Radio 4's Midweek programme. The Founder of the Junior Memory Championship is Jonathan Hancock, former World Memory Champion, holder of two Guinness World Records and author of nine books on memory and learning. Importantly he is deputy headmaster of a primary school in Brighton and ensures that every element of this project is keyed into the real learning needs of children, and the practicalities of teaching in a crowded curriculum. As a teacher he sees for himself how memory and learning techniques are central to educational success. Jonathan says: "Today's primary school pupils may be adept at using the latest computer games and the internet, but they can still have difficulty learning the information and skills they're taught at school. To tackle these issues, and to make the most of the way the 'iPad Generation' thinks and learns, ancient memory techniques are being put to use as part of this national competition. The Junior Memory Championship involves ten and eleven year olds being shown how the ancient Greeks and Romans taught their students to remember, using strategies remarkably similar to today's interactive computer games and social-networking sites". The organisers of the championship, the Learning Skills Foundation, deliver a range of learning materials (developed by Jonathan Hancock) for primary teachers to use. These materials include lesson plans, INSET pack, video clips, a full memory training programme for the Year 6 children and materials to develop learning skills in other year-groups. "We wish to grow this project to reach most primary schools throughout the UK. We seek sponsorship of 30,000 to further develop and expand the Junior Memory Championship to enable the maximum number of teachers and children to participate and benefit from vitally important memory systems. Please see the downloadable document for further information". Contact: Mrs Caroline Shott. Address: Learning Skills Foundation, 8 Swift Street, London SW6 5AG.

TIDDLYWINKS PRE-SCHOOL
Tiddlywinks Pre-school is seeking sponsorship partners for the upcoming terms to help it continue in the education of pre-school children - and can offer a sponsor a range of advertising and marketing opportunities. Tiddlywinks is a Pre-school, set within a rural village in Suffolk and has strong ties to the Primary School and community. It employs five highly trained members of staff from the local community and has a committee made up of five volunteers from the community. The school is looking for sponsorship to help with venue fees for the new year and for new educational equipment. They have access to parents through the Pre-school and Primary School and the rest of the village through the fundraising. They distribute newsletters weekly and do monthly advertising in the local paper. "Tiddlywinks organises several fundraising opportunities during the year and would be happy to promote all of our sponsors at these events. These include: Christmas Fair, Easter Party, Hallowe'en Party, quiz nights, toddle and rides, nearly new sales and much more. This is a great opportunity for a sponsor to help with the education of 2 1/2 - 4 year olds while promoting their own business". Contact: Mrs Cooper, Treasurer. Tel.: 01440 786 956. E-mail:

EPR/001 ELDERSLIE NURSERY SCHOOL
Elderslie Nursery School is a non-profit-making, parent committee-run nursery school with charity status. It provides learning through play for children of multiple abilities between the ages of two and five years old, as well offering an accessible form of support to parents of young children in the local community. The nursery has facilities to teach children with some physical and learning disabilities, as well as able children, and promises a safe, encouraging and fun learning environment through play of all types. Elderslie Nursery School attracts the majority of its funds to buy resources and equipment for the children through fundraising. "The parent committee and local community all help with the planning and implementation of the events and, although this helps, this method can only raise so much and relies heavily on community and public support which can be erratic - so we also rely on funding from external sources of support such as other charities and sponsorship. Our ongoing intention is to provide equipment and resources that will enable children with a wide range of abilities, including children with speech and language difficulties, physical disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders, to learn through play and their environment to the best of their abilities. We are also hoping to find money and/or support for a marketing and publicity campaign, so that we can raise awareness of what we do within the surrounding areas where we are often not known about. We can offer advertising in exchange for support, as we are based within a village hall which is heavily used by other groups to - and our information board is available for all the public to view".
