Maths Workshop for Parents

16th January 2018
Many parents and grandparents were welcomed into Pre-School and our Reception Class this afternoon to find out about the teaching of Maths and to join in with 'hands on' activities!
 
They were greeted by our Headteacher, Mrs Barnard-Taylor, and were then given an informative talk by Mrs Riches, our Reception teacher.
 
Everyone participated in a wide range of learning experiences within the classrooms and the outdoor area.  Parents and children were encouraged to continue their learning at home and were provided with flyers containing ideas of activities which can be carried out with everyday materials and resources.
 
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend and thank you to all staff involved.
 
"The workshops are a great idea.  My daughter enjoys us, and her grandparents, being able to visit her class!"
 
"I enjoyed being able to see first hand my grand-daughter's classroom environment and to see how she is being taught - I was very impressed!"
 
"It is good being able to interact with the children in the classrooms and to learn new ways to develop their skills."
 
"It is good to have time to experience the activities with my child and to gain an insight into how learning happens in school."
 
"The activities are very practical and can also be carried out at home to help my child."
 
"I really enjoy learning about new activities that I can use at home to help my daughter learn more."
