Maths evening

15th September 2015

Last night we held our first Maths curriculum workshop for parents, families and friends of Giffard Park School children.  We had a fantastic turnout at the event which began with a presentation about our Maths calculation policies, mental maths targets and our approach to Maths at Giffard Park.  After the presentation, parents were able to visit our Year 5 and 6 classrooms to see demonstrations and take part in activities based on our calculation policies.  There were some very enthusiastic Year 6 children also taking part, who enjoyed helping younger children to show their families how they best learn addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods.

“I extremely enjoyed the workshop because I was able to help other children and adults to see how we do Maths at Giffard Park School!” Kelly Year 6.

“My favourite part was showing parents examples of how we do Maths.” Erin Year 6.

If you were unable to attend our workshop, we will be sending a letter home shortly which will contain information about where to find our calculation policies online and to outline our developing Mental Maths targets.
