At Homerswood Primary and Nursery School, we believe that a good understanding of Mathematics is vital for every child's future.
Mathematics equips pupils with the uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways.
Mathematics is important in everyday life, and is integral to all aspects of life.
With this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic
attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them forever.
We held a very successful workshop all about Maths Fluency for parents of children in Years 1 & 2. The feedback was 100% positive. Everyone who attended felt that they would change the way they help their child with maths in the future and 100% would recommend attending a future event.
We do plan to run this workshop again in January as an evening session, but in the meantime, the power-point is attached.

Level 6 Maths Workshop - Tuesday 13th January 2015
On Tuesday 13th January 2015 three children from Year 6 went to St. Albans with Mrs Cropley and spent the entire day working on various elements of the Level 6 Curriculum. The workshop was really practical and covered volume, algebra, n-th term and data handling. It was a brilliant day and EVERYONE, (including Mrs Cropley,) took loads of methods, ideas and increased understanding away with them at the end of the day!
Bumble the Bubbly Maths Clown Workshops!
On Thursday 6th March 2014 we held a maths information evening which focused on addition and subtraction. Parents of children from Year 1 through to Year 4 were invited to attend.
We had a full classroom of parents at the event, who all agreed that it was an informative evening, which gave useful information about methods that are currently used in class. Four teachers were at the event, giving parents the opportunity to talk with them after the session.
Please find above a link to the power-point that was shown during the evening.
Based on the positive feedback from the parents that attended, we now plan to run an event on multiplication and subtraction in the future.
