Last week's Maths Workshop held in school for parents had plenty of great ideas and a little friendly competition thrown in too. Gareth Metcalfe, a maths expert teacher, who has been working in school with pupils and teachers over the last year, and will be again this year, provided some great practical ideas and games to play with your children as well as providing some theory and background to the importance of helping develop Number Sense for children through visual methods and approaches.
Many of the ideas and resources can be found for free on Gareth's Website 'I See Maths', link below.
A key part of children's maths development is how important it is to consider how we praise our children in their work, focusing on praise for hard work rather than how smart or clever they are.
Further information about this can be found in the Parent/Curriculum/Growth Mindset section of our website.
Thanks to Gareth and to the fantastic turnout of parents at the session.
