Maths Information Sessions

Would you like to find out more about how to support your child with their maths learning? Is your child anxious when it comes to maths? Are you anxious about your own abilities?

Next Thursday and Friday, 28th/29th March, our Maths Leaders will be running a Maths information session, suitable for parents of children in Years R through to 6. Our aim is to dispel many of the myths surrounding how children learn maths and to offer some practical advice for parents. We will also be sharing ideas about how you can support your child at home with maths.

We do hope that you will be able to join us, so we have scheduled two sessions for this event:

– Thursday 28th March from 7pm – 8pm
– Friday 29th March from 9am – 10am

Both will be held in the Breakout Space (accessed via the Year 6 entrance).

We look forward to seeing you there.
