KS2 Maths Cafe - November 2019
To support the parents we held a KS2 maths cafe. The focus of the cafe was how children use measure. We looked at how the expectations of measure progress from year 3 to year 6.
Parents had the opportunity to have a go at some of the activities children would complete in lessons. We also looked at some examples of questions and the skills and knowledge children need to solve these questions. Parents who came said the session was useful and has helped them to support their children at home.

We hope you all had a relaxing Easter break. It's been lovely to hear all of the stories the children have be excited to share about their activities and adventures.
