Year 3 Workshops

It was wonderful to welcome so many Year 3 parents into our school this term to attend the Reading and Maths Afternoon Tea sessions. The relaxed atmosphere was great and everybody had lots of positive things to say about the content of the workshops. The majority of parents who filled in the evaluation forms said that they felt more confident in supporting their child at home after the sessions.
After some work with just the parents it was lovely to invite pupils into the workshops too, this meant that the practical tips/ games we had covered could then be practised with the children. Watching parents working together their children was a pleasure to see. (The children also particularly enjoyed the biscuits and cakes - thank you Michelle from the school kitchens.)

Thank you so much to all the parents who were able to make it.

Copies of the PowerPoints used can be accessed on the School Website under 'Parent/Carer Area.'

Here are some comments from parents;
