A second maths family learning session for parents of children in Year R took place on 8th March.
Lots of parents already do maths activities at home with their children – this includes things such as weighing and measuring for cooking, counting objects, number flash cards, playing board games/counting games.
Parents reported that they found the session helpful.
“It has given me good ideas to try at home.”
“I will try and make maths more fun by playing different games.”
A second session for Year 1/2 parents was also held. It was nice to see so many parents who attended the first session, return. You can see the children enjoyed the sessions too!
Feedback from parents was positive and they indicated that they would like further sessions in the future.
Thank you to all the parents who attended.
A follow up family learning maths session for Year 3/4 parents took place on 22nd March 2017. Parents and children enjoyed playing a range of maths games to practise key curriculum skills such as adding, doubling and halving.
Lots of the parents already work on learning times tables at home, as well as using Mathletics to help support their child.
Parents were all keen to attend further sessions and planned to try out some of the games and activities at home.
Thank you to the parents who attended. We hope to offer more sessions in the summer term.
