Thank you to all who joined us for our second curriculum presentation/ workshop, focusing on the teaching of maths at Wrenbury.

Mrs Francis and Miss Phillips took us on a journey through the skills, knowledge and understanding of addition, subtraction , multiplication and division and demonstrated, across the age groups, the types of calculations the children are expected to do within the new curriculum.

The presentation/workshop was very well received by all those who attended, with all agreeing that the event had met its aims of ensuring that those attending:

  • had a better understanding of how addition and subtraction are taught in school
  • had a better understanding of how multiplication and division are in school
  • know how to support their child at home more
  • understand the expectations of the maths curriculum

    All attendees felt that the timing and length was good.

    Below are a flavour of responses to 'The best part of the presentation':

  • Good tips and practical examples
  • Guidelines on the expectations for each year group
  • Seeing practical examples of how to do the different methods...especially learning new methods
  • Pitch, naturalness
  • Making learning fun and being very helpful in answering questions
  • Shown the written methods
  • Explanation of the different methods
  • Number lines — using to add/subtract larger numbers
  • Well explained and good layout
  • I thought the explanations were very good and easy to understand. The effort put into the prersentation was very much appreciated and the detail in the sheets to bring home was fantastic. I now have a greater understanding of what is expected. Many thanks.
  • Thank you for the meeting last night. Very informative.

    Thank you to Mrs Francis and Miss Phillips for preparing and leading tonight's successful event.

    Over the past few weeks, an archaeology club run by Mrs Heaton has been travelling back in time from the Vikings to the Romans to the Egyptians.During our first lesson we learnt how the Vikings wove thread to make shoelaces. Some of us even took extra thread home to make more. We have also baked Viking bread which we ate with honey; made Roman ink and written in Latin and mummified an orange...

    Nine of our young singers, along with Mrs Heaton and myself, visited Wrenbury Nursing Home yesterday to sing a few carols and Christmas songs for the residents. The children were warmly welcomed and sang beautifully. It was lovely hearing some of the residents joining in with the traditional carols: 'O come all ye faithful' and 'In the bleak Midwinter'. Thank you Lola, Orla...
