Maths Curriculum Evening
Curriculum Evening for parents helps to explain all about maths...
What do you have to add together to get an excellent mathematician? This was a question that was discussed and experienced by the parents of the Foundation Unit and Junior Department in their final curriculum evening of the year.
The presentation addressed three key questions:
· What does it mean to be an excellent mathematician?
· How do we develop excellent mathematicians at school?
· How can parents support excellent mathematicians at home?
The parents were then invited to experience two mathematics lessons appropriate to their daughter’s age: one focusing on known facts and skills, the other focusing on using these to solve problems and reason.
It was a fun evening where the parents enjoyed experiencing first-hand the way teaching, learning and the standards have changed since their school days! It was also a great way for parents and the school to work together to advance our shared aim: developing potential!
