Demystifying Maths

The Demystifying Maths workshops are open to the parents and carers of year 7 students, and are held once a term. During these workshops we explore the methods used to teach topics that will be taught to their child during that term. Within the first workshop in September 2017 we explained the different methods used for multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Parents had a go at some activities that their child would be looking at during the lessons.
