I would like to say a big thank you to those who attended the Maths Workshop. We had a really good turn out, especially as we are aware that it can be difficult to attend these things in the working week. I would also like to thank the children for sharing their learning with their parents. They were very articulate and showed real progress in their explanations.
We began by discussing the changes to how we teach Maths. We are aware that these methods have changed drastically over the years (and even over the past couple of years)! We discussed how it is important to generate a positive attitude towards Maths and how damaging negative comments can be to your child's learning. We then discussed the different stages of learning within the Power Maths scheme.
Below you can see a few photos from our activities.
"It gave a better understanding of what you are trying to achieve"
"It was very useful as it is over 60 years since I learnt Maths. It would be useful to continue to hold these sessions"
"I liked how interactive it was. It was very clear that the children really enjoy the songs"
