On Monday evening, on 18 November, a Mathematics Workshop was held at St Paul’s Primary School.
Parents who attended were welcomed by Mrs Patricia Williams, the Head Teacher, followed by an introduction by Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) Mrs Gloria Leo informing and encouraging parents to assist with their child’s educational development at home.
Teachers gave group workshops and discussed progression in the calculations policy and demonstrated practical methods of equations. Leaflets were also given to parents to take home to support further learning.
Parents gave feedback and felt that the workshop allowed them to gain knowledge of different teaching methods used in maths, putting their own skills to the test and raising their understanding of the principles children need to learn. Many asked for a refresher course for next year.
Gloria commented: “It was a fun and informative evening. Parents seemed to have enjoyed themselves. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the workshop and to the staff who helped make this evening a great success.”
