Stay and Learn- Maths
In Autumn 2 a parental workshop was held to outline the expectations of the year 2 curriculum. We looked at various games, problems and activities around number and place value. Later on in the year there will be workshops that will have a different focus. The parents were shown how we teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
