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.
