It was lovely to welcome lots of parents this morning for our Maths Open Morning. The school has recently introduced a 'Singaporian approach' to learning Maths called Inspire and today was a perfect opportunity for parents to see first hand how we now teach Maths at Goudhurst & Kilndown and how engaged our children are as a result. Many classes took to the outdoors and much of the Maths equipment that the PTFA had kindly donated was also in full use. See the short 'Spark' video below.
One parent commented:
Dear Mrs Roberts,
Thank you for the opportunity to see Maths in action this morning. It was a delight to see such creative and enriching teaching and learning in every classroom. Every child I spoke to was engaged and eloquent about the thinking they were doing and they were all so happy and relaxed. Wonderful!
I would like to thank all the parents who joined us this morning and I am sure you will join me in thanking the staff for their dedication and of course all the children for all their continued hard work.
