Numeracy in the Cafe - Friday 3rd November

Parents, carers and governors were invited to attend our 'student run' café on Friday 3rd November.

To share a coffee and cake for £1.50 and had the opportunity to talk 'numeracy' with Mr Sykes. Mr Sykes is one of our inclusion team who specialises with Numeracy and Literacy across the school. Visitors were able to see how numeracy is taught in the classroom to enable them to support their child at home with the newest ideas.

We looked at and played games to embed addition and subtraction skills before embarking on written methods of calculation. Including multiplication and subtraction. Visitors said this was useful and gave them the 'power' to support their child at home through games. More café sessions are due to be on the school calendar in the near future.
