Year 2 Parents and Children Problem Solving Workshop

As part of our curriculum for maths, we have had a special focus on problem solving this year.  Teaching children to use and apply the mathematics that they know to new situations is an important skill, alongside the qualities of team working and perseverance. All children have a weekly problem solving lesson. The types of problems that children are asked to solve were shared with parents during a 30 minute presentation by Liz Thomas (Numeracy Advisory Teacher) and Jo Briscombe (ICT Advisory Teacher). Parents and children were then invited to explore activities in the workshop. View the Presentation
