Parents Go Back to School

On the 22nd of May, Mrs Chipperfield began her parents maths classes. Many parents came to this to learn the differences in the teaching of maths today from when they were taught at school and what the new curriculum teaches at year 5 and 6.

The parents were given manipulatives and shown the new conceptual methods of teaching mathematics, including the Singapore Bar Method.

The sessions aim to help parents be able help their children, in the same way they are being taught at school, with their math homework for now and the future.
