Meet the Teacher 2019

We would like to invite you to come to school for a Meet the Teacher session. This year we will have a specific focus on maths to help you further support your child at home.

Where? Your own child’s classroom (or partner class if teachers are doing a joint presentation).

When? Wednesday 25 September 4-4.30pm and 4.30-5pm (There are two sessions to allow parents/carers with more than one child in school to attend different presentations).

What’s it all about?   We will be giving you important information about your child’s learning, including:

  • The curriculum your child will be engaging with this year
  • Teaching methods used to engage pupils in their learning
  • Maths information and a chance to learn and discuss terminology – from S.E.A.L to Big Maths
  • Information about the homework your child will be bringing home.

See you then!
