Reserve Your Place : Years 2, 3 and 4 - Maths Curriculum Evening, 22nd November
On 22nd November, the school is holding a Maths Curriculum Evening for parents / carers of children in Years 2, 3 and 4.
As you may be aware, there has been a lot in the press recently about Bar Modelling or Singapore maths, which is a powerful, visual approach to teaching maths. Research has shown that maths taught in this way embeds conceptual understanding and children make better progress than using other methods.
The focus of the evening will be on how the school and parents can work together to support children in their learning of maths using this approach.
The evening will consist of two parts.
- An introductory talk lasting approximately 45 minutes on Bar Modelling by Peter Warwick, one of the Local Authority advisers for maths.
- Three 20 minute workshops being led by teachers in years 2, 3 and 4, demonstrating the use of practical resources in class and how parents can support their children at home.
I am grateful to Mrs Tippett for organising this event and look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
Reserve Your Place
If you wish to attend, please reserve your place using the form on this page.
Places are limited and are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Maximum 2 places per family.
This is now fully booked. If you wish to be put on the reserve list, please use the form below. You will be contacted if any places become available. Again, this is first come, first served based on when you added yourself to the reserve list.
Given the level of demand, the school has arranged an additional workshop for the maths curriculum evening next week in order to accommodate more parents. Those parents who requested places on the reserve list who can now be accommodated have been contacted and, unless there are any cancellations, the evening is again fully booked.
Please be aware at the reading curriculum evening last year we had to decline requests for places as we were fully booked, but not all parents who booked a place attended. I am keen to avoid this happening again. If you book and then find you are unable to attend please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can reallocate your place to someone on the reserve list.
Online registration for this event is closed
