2017 Maths Cafe 29.11.17

Oak Class hosted a Maths Cafe on Wednesday 29th November. We invited parents to come in and join us, tempting them with tea, coffee and cakes. They were shown the different methods that the children use for the four operations. The children and parents created a booklet where they were challenged to undertake some tricky calculations using those methods.

"Thank you for all of your help, I think I need to come in every week!" - Mrs Holt

"It was really interesting to understand how Maths is tackled in the classroom." - Mrs Howarth

"Who knew 'chunking' could be so much fun!" - Mrs Daly

"Most of all, I liked the idea of the pupils instructing the parents. Nice cakes too! More please!" - Miss Williams
