Maths Workshop Feedback

Home » News » Maths Workshop Feedback

Last night, staff hosted another curriculum workshop; this time focussing on maths.

A particular emphasis was placed on sharing the practical resources and methods used to teach the four operations using Numicon, Deines, Cuisenaire rods and bar modelling as well as a focus on explaining the learning of maths through the 'concrete' and 'pictorial' stages before working in the 'abstract'.

There was 100% positive feedback with all agreeing or strongly agreeing that:

  • The aims of the workshop were achieved.
  • The presentation was well organised.
  • The content of the workshop was relevant.
  • The presentation was informative and useful.
  • The quality of the learning materials and resources was good.
  • What I have learned will support me in helping my child with their maths.
  • The venue and set up for the presentation was appropriate.

    Many thanks to Miss Phillips, Miss Pitchford, Mrs Heaton and Mrs Charlesworth for the time and effort put into hosting the workshop, which was very well received:

    • Absolutely brilliant — this will help me help my children. An excellent presentation. Thank you (YR/Y1)
    • Useful to see materials used in school. I can refer to these at home to support. Would be interested in the calculations workshop also (Y3)
    • Really useful as I had no knowledge of how maths was taught and happy that I can support X at home now (YR)
    • I enjoyed learning how you would use a bar model to work out fractions (Y1/Y5)
    • Useful information to help with homework/learning at home. Good opportunities to ask questions too! (Y1/Y5)
    • It is lovely to be kept up to speed with what the children are learning. There is nothing worse than being asked by your child to help and not be able to. I don't have that problem now. Thank you. (Y1/Y2)
    • Keep doing these workshops! (Y2)
