Maths Workshop

Infants Maths Workshop for Parents, October 2019

We are very happy to hear that the session has helped parents feel more confident when talking with their children about maths and helping them learn at home.

We understand that our session covered details about the entire Key Stage 1 Mathematics curriculum, so if you have any further questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask your class teacher or Mrs Ponder, our Federation Maths Subject Leader for the Infant site.

Our website also has a Mathematics page which has lots of additional information, including videos, that you may find useful.

Please find the power point that was used during the workshop here. We hope that this may be useful for you to access at home.

Here’s some of the feedback we received:

It was great to see all the methods being used in class, I have gone away with a better understanding of methods my child likes to use – I’m more confident to help at home and set some appropriate challenges!

I found the workshop very useful. The handout will help me to revisit the information covered in my own time at home.

Thank you for a really informative workshop. I now feel full of knowledge and new insights and the tools, resources and website resources. All the ideas to do at home have really taken away a lot of fears. Particularly found it useful hearing the range of resources and then having a go and using them with my child in the practical session. A huge thank you for the opportunity to come in and explaining things so clearly.

I love the opportunity to work with my child as I get to see how he’s doing in the class environment and how he’s progressing. I also love the opportunity to speak to other parents to share ways of working with our children.

I feel it’s really useful to hear the language used in maths in school so we can support this at home.

It is lovely to see the children using all the equipment that is available to them.

I found it very helpful and informative. Some great information about useful websites.

I always find these very useful. It is lovely to see all the many things the children have to use, and how many ways of using these to help them. Very good ideas to help my son at home.
