On Wednesday 13th March, Miss Ring and Mrs Wright held a very successful Key Stage 1 Maths Workshop for parents and carers. The workshop was aimed at parents of children in Year 1 and 2 in order to further their understanding of outcomes within Year 1 and 2, how we assess their children and use this to support teaching and learning, what our calculation policy is and how we teach Number in Key Stage 1, along practical opportunities to experience activities their children would in class.

During the workshop, parents and carers were guided through what the National Curriculum and Teacher Assessment Framework is, enabling them to understand what their children are expected to achieve/do by the end of the year. We also explained how these documents support teaching and learning of Maths in Key Stage 1. Parents were also shown the school’s calculation policy, which was then unpicked and explained in depth, with Miss Ring and Mrs Wright showing the parents what the processes for each strategy is and how it is taught to their children. Throughout each stage of the workshop, parents were provided with the tools children use in class and were encouraged to have a go themselves.

Overall, the workshop was a great success with many parents commenting on how helpful the session was and that they know how increased confidence and understanding in to how they can best support their children at home.

Below are some feedback comments provided by the parents and carers:

“All of the information I received in the workshop is useful to help my son in his learning”

“I will use these types of strategies at home when I am helping my son”

“The way the teachers explained it makes it seem so easy!”

A big thank you to the parents and carers who attended on the day, Miss Ring and Mrs Wright had an excellent time with you all and are so happy that you all gained so much!
