We had a superb turn out at our maths workshop last night where we discussed recent research around Maths and Numeracy and how this was impacting on our teaching and learning in Glenurquhart with an aim of raising attainment in this area across the school. We also had the children demonstrating the resources sent home with the maths packs to all families yesterday. Thank you to all who attended. We hope you have enjoyed sharing these packs with the children and continue to have fun with maths through the activities contained within the booklet in the packs.
Feedback from both the packs and last night’s event have been really positive. Many parents commented on hearing the new methods for teaching and the changes since they were taught maths, the progression through stages and seeing the new resources being used as being the most interesting and useful. Parents are now keen to see these developed further with new games being added when possible.
Parents have now requested something similar for Literacy and we will look towards this next session.
