A huge thank you to the many parents and carers who attended our recent Singapore Maths Workshop. We were thrilled by the high attendance, so much so that we had to change to a bigger room last minute! Parents and Carers enjoyed participating in practical activities and learning useful strategies to use at home as well as reflecting on their own experiences with maths so that we could support each other in moving forward with our children’s learning. We really appreciate the valuable feedback that was given from all our parents and carers so watch this space for upcoming Singapore Maths Workshops.‚Äč

Here is some of the feedback that we've received so far:

“I have enjoyed analysing positive and negative statements because it helped me to reflect ways of supporting a child without me telling them what to do.”

“I had no idea about Singapore Maths as my child has just joined year 1 and this helped me understand and be able to support her”

“Before today I had no idea what Singapore Maths was. I enjoyed finding out how my children will be taught”

“I found the information very useful to help my son at home, especially learning how you can use different ways to suit your child instead of just your way”



Last term we have been collaboratively learning with parents and children from year 1 and reception, offering fun and engaging ways for parents to work alongside their children to enhance parental partnership and support their children as they learn.

Mrs Sherwin and Mrs Redgrave have been running the sessions at Lewis Street each Tuesday morning, working alongside families in such areas as;

  • Reading and comprehension skills
  • Read Write Inc to help develop reading and writing
  • Speech and language acquisition and blank level questioning
  • Book talk and fun with storytelling
  • The “egg drop” challenge
  • And rounding off the project with a fun, storytelling session at Eccles library.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and the relaxed atmosphere has helped build bonds between home and school. We hope to develop such sessions more in the future and welcome suggestions for future aspects of learning and partnership. Keep your eyes peeled for future opportunities in and around school.
