Maths Mastery Parent Workshop Year R and 1

Thursday 19th October 2017 Mrs Rimmer

 

We had a very busy workshop today full of parents from both Hedgehogs and Woodpeckers class. Mrs Rimmer shared about why we at Riverside are following Maths Mastery in these year groups, which links very well with the concept of 'Growth Mindset'. She also talked about the use of manipulatives in the classroom, e.g. bead strings, cubes etc, even getting the parents to have a go! Parents could see what their children would be learning each term and took a pack of games, resources and ideas to support their child's Maths learning at home.

As well as this, some of the children showed the parents how we were using the resources in class. You can view the videos below.....

 

 

Here are some of the parent's comments:

"I enjoyed learning the style and content of what you will be teaching my child. I look forward to supporting this".

"It was very useful to understand how the children are taught and it has given me ideas to help support my child at home. An excellent presentation session - well worth our time".

Maths Mastery Parent Workshop Year 2 and 3

Tuesday 31st October 2017 Mrs Rimmer

 

Another busy workshop today with  parents from both Squirrels and Otters class. These year groups are also being taught with the Maths Mastery approach. Parents could see what their children would be learning each term and took away resources and ideas to support their child's Maths learning at home. We focused some time on understanding using the bar model and in the resources below, there is some more information on this, as well as some word problems to try.

Below are some videos with the children showing us what they use in class in Maths lessons.

 

Here are some of the parent's comments:

'Interesting and informative. I now have a good understanding of my child's approach to Maths'.

'First time at the workshop and I found it really helpful. Hopefully I can put the methods into practice with my child at home'.

Maths Parent Workshop Years 4, 5 and 6

Thursday 16th November 2017 Mrs Rimmer

 

In this workshop we started by focusing on the skills that the children really need to have to support their Maths learning, such as times tables and number bonds. We then looked at what the children need to know for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, shape and measures and fractions, decimals and percentages. Mrs Rimmer shared the different formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and how this progresses from Year 4 to 6. Parents were also able to see how we problem solve and reason in Maths and the importance of this.

Hand outs were given for how to support their children at home and these can all be found below.

 

One of our parents said, 'I found this very useful, well presented and informative. I like the active way Maths is being taught'.
