This week we have held some Maths workshops for our parents. Led by our two Maths Coaches, parents explored how we approach the teaching of Maths here at SFX. We have a strong focus on developing conceptual thinking for our students in Maths and working with them so they have a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. Our parents really enjoyed the chance to develop a deeper understanding both of what we do at school and what they can do at home to support their children’s mathematical thinking. Here is what one parent said:
I really enjoyed the prep workshop yesterday. I feel so glad that our kids are going through maths learning in such a thoughtful and constructive way. When I did schooling it was about moving the kids like a flock of sheep through to the levels of each subject hence maths had been a stigma for me personally. I got a lot out of the workshop and especially about a having more positive approach which I will be more mindful of.
