MATHS WORKSHOP FOR ALL PARENTS

Friday 20th January 2107 09.00 – 10.00 in the large hall

This will introduce parents to the concept of ‘Mastery Maths’ – this is how we teach maths at Fern Hill.  It is essential that parents understand this new approach so they are able to support the children learning at home.

There will also be time with the school maths team, Mr Skelton and Mrs Seal, who will share best practice and provide guidance on home learning e.g. useful websites and tips.
