Parent Reading Workshop

This morning, our school has invited parents in to take part in our second learning workshop, ‘How We Teach Reading’.

Parents listened to a short presentation from Miss Harvey and Mrs Calland, and then were able to spend time in their child’s classroom to see the different ways in which reading is taught throughout school.

Each class from Reception to Year 6 took part. Here is some feedback from our parents:

“Really enjoyed the workshop this morning. It’s nice to spend time in class with Amber. 🙂 ” – Amber’s mum, Year 2L

“Enjoyed seeing how the children used the Bug Club.” – Nicholas’ mum, Year 2L

“Enjoyable morning watching children learn and also learning a few things myself!” – Daniel’s mum, Year 3T

“Really enjoyed seeing the class and the way that they teach them. Really happy with this school.” 

“We both enjoyed the session and learned about the school website.” – Paul and Joan

“Good to see how all the children work and how well behaved they all are. Excellent. Thank you.” – Alfie’s mum,  1B

“Really information-packed and helpful resource.” – Jacob’s  (3K) and Joseph’s (1B) dad

“Watched Alex in class reading and doing comprehension. Good to see how all the children were focused and paying attention to Mrs White. Really enjoyed it.” – Alex’s mum, 5B

“Really enjoyed to work with my children in the classroom.” – Noah’s (1M) and Oliver’s (4S) mum

“Lovely session which explained how to work with my child at home.” – Shan’s mum, 4L

We hope that you were able to gain a good insight into the way we support our children at Oxford Grove to calculate proficiently and were able to see the types of resources we use in class to help children master essential calculation strategies.

Family Learning

In April, we began hosting Maths Family Learning workshops. These workshops were for parents of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and were held every Monday between 9am and 12pm.

As part of the workshops, parents were helped to create resources to use with their children to support their learning at home. The children also joined the sessions for part of the time to learn with their parents!

 

Thank you to all our attendees for your support. The workshops have finished for the Summer, but will return in September. More information will be sent out about our next workshops, focusing on reading and writing, before the end of the year.
