This afternoon our Year 1 and Year 2 parents became children again as they learnt about maths in the classrooms.  We wanted our parents to understand how maths is taught at Heronswood so that they are able to support their children with their learning. 

 

The children modelled to their parents how to use cubes and number squares to help with counting, how to use numicon and number lines to help with adding and how to use numicon to learn number bonds to 10 and 20.  Parents then put their own maths skills to the test as the teachers asked them to do different challenges with the children. 

We were delighted with the number of parents who attended the sessions and all the feedback was really positive.  We are looking forward to holding the Key Stage 2 session next week.

“Showing and describing how the children learn.”

“Learning about the different methods the children use.”

“Thought it was a great session, I’ve learnt a lot and can use it at home.”

“Was really useful to work with my child and see him working in his school environment.”
